Kim’s work aims to draw attention to the illusion of digital media that frames our experiential perception of space. Her works are informed by integrated processes of sculptural installation, visualisation and materiality, that she considers as an immersive experience between people, objects and space.

The projects have focused on tactile and sensory experience, and her works has been showcased at the Science Museum, the V&A Digital Futures series, and various conferences. Other projects include an experiential installation created in collaboration with a Physics PhD student from Imperial College London, and a research-based design project with Sir John Soane’s Museum.

The project ‘2+2=5’ starts from my flat image on Google Street View. My house has become blurred out by one resident’s request because of the privacy concern.
I could easily find quite a few blurring houses on the same street on Google Street View, and other streets also show similar results. The private issue has arisen from 2010, when few cities in Germany are available on Google Street View. And then, many people in Germany started to ask their house to opt-out from the Google Site. So now we can see blurring street view, if you search street in Germany on Google.

The project ‘2+2=5’ aims to represent a new, imaginary version of space and architecture inspired by Google Street View in Germany. The digital collage on slide film expresses the potential impact of how internet-based information from social media mediates our understanding of real places and real lives.

The ‘Confabulated Architecture’ started from the research question that how the online information affects imagined memories of the space to people. Online social networks offer connections to our thoughts and actions where mediated meaning is created shared in dialogue and interaction. Harnessing this in a new form of imaginative expression, I asked people who had never visited the museum to draw it, based solely on someone else’s online review.

The 3d printed model was combined aspects of these drawings to create a new, imaginary versions of the museum.

This project was about information architecture in mental and physical spaces, and centres on Sir John Soane’s museum, often described as a physical manifestation of his mind. We were tasked to read excerpts from Kenya Hara’s book and a scientific paper on cognitive architecture; visit Sir John Soane’s museum, and create a work in response to both of these. The work was presented at the museum on 6 Feb 2014.

Confabulated Architecture  
You can’t see the wood for the trees

'Memory is a part of what constitutes our knowledge. Another part of our knowledge is contained in our current perceptions, of what we are seeing, of our own bodies, and of the people and things around us(Histein, W. 2009).'

Installation View

As people increasingly use online media, we have become accustomed to creating artificial memories, which are based on the information we access from the Internet that shape our collective/individual imagination.

The way we normally see and perceive the surroundings passes through imagination. What happens when imagination is influenced by the software culture? The sculptural installation ‘You can’t see the wood for the trees’ enables the experience of this specific aspect of our society through a metaphor; a window, which represents the mediated perception of reality through the lenses ofdigital media and interfaces.
