Exhibition Maker - Curator [Ausstellungsmacherin]  

Kim examine the interaction between the identity of a public place and human experience for developing and planning exhibitions. She has been considering the communication modes and interfaces that could enhance the individual experience between people, objects and space. Her interest, more recently, has moved to in the relationship in between book and architecture.

A building has its blueprint, frame and materials to become a building, a book also has its own systematic structure such as text, grid and texture to become a book. As if a cluster of buildings form a community where a cultural interplay may begin, the books in the exhibition ‘Architecture as Material’ will encourage the audience to extend their three-dimensional reading experience to become a part of it.

With an interdisciplinary approach, the artists are challenged to communicate both material and visual aspects of reading experience by twisting the form and structural interpretation of a book.

explores the modern social norms of screaming as a point of intersection between gender, race, and age. The project considers the scream as a deviant form of behaviour, expressive of identity and individual voice, yet socially taboo. Through a combination of voices, sounds, and set design, the performers will question whether this primitive mode of communication can be revalued by the modern viewer as something more affirmative.

For the Project Space Festival 2016 in Berlin, I was invited with performer Su-Mi Jang, sound artist Miriam Siebenstädt for the collaboration work at NON Berlin.
Using the voice and sounds from objects, performers Su-Mi Jang and Miriam Siebenstädt play with the common clichés we have towards the act of screaming. Through her voice and body, Su-Mi Jang uses screaming as a material to express emotions, let her voice be heard and to observe how the audience reflect the performance. Miriam Siebenstädt participates in creating sound, this time playing only with objects instead of instruments. The performers choose objects that are typically not seen as instruments. In fact, most of the time these objects are hidden or neglected, only to be used for particular purposes. In this project, the voices of objects tell a different story from what they ‘normally’ are.

For love! The hidden voice, I arranged the objects and designs the set to maximise the effect of the performance, not only for the performers ‘to play’ but also for the audience to immerse in the project.

draws a parallel between human and molecular behaviour. The form of the installation is based on David’s double-cylinder computer simulations of multiscale instabilities in complex, non-Newtonian fluids. According to the Lennard Jones Potential model, when molecules of liquid argon are far apart, they do not sense each other; hence there is no attraction. When closer, they are mildly attracted, when close, they are attracted and comfortable, but when they are too close they repel. This is not unlike human behaviour, according to space proxemics, so the installation brings this classical simulation to a human scale.

The pattern on the outer and inner circles of the installation also goes from chaotic to more ordered, which mirrors the way David conducts his research – turning chaotic values into ordered data by averaging the numbers again and again to find the general flow of the molecules. Even though the molecules’ behaviour appears to be chaotic at first sight, there is a general flow and trajectory in which they move.

The PhysicSpace was a collaboration between RCA's Information Experience Design programme and Physics PhD students from Imperial College London. It was funded by the Institute of Physics.

is about the relationship between people and objects in the museum space, and the properties they share. The Medieval Museum is made of brick, and features the only remaining part of the Old Stockholm city wall in its original place.

Bricks are made of clay, which is malleable; when fired they become hard and permanent, and are used to create large structures.
This transition is not unlike the construction of knowledge in a museum space.
