“Certain forms found in natural world fascinates me a great deal as they exemplify the fundamental rules of pattern making in design and reveal the structural secrets through their architecture. This essential understanding stimulates my imagination towards building a complex undulating surface with both regular and irregular modules. The role of mathematical thinking in my work is as inevitable as that of nature itself. Ideally, I would like to portray a coherent philosophy rooted in both nature and science, yet I would contrarily also like to shake up their logic in the hope that my work might transcend my current knowledge. Or perhaps be allowed to become more spontaneous and less predictable.

At the same time, in my mind, the modules represent certain growths or changes brought about through passage of time. I imagine them symbolizing the fragments of memories that we experience through our conscious journeys. Through them I want to explore the chaotic order resulting from many small pieces containing image fragments. In this work, skeleton, I would like to see each of the parts as an independent soul presenting unique power and energy that then together become an entity as cells to a body. I hope to evoke the birthing tension when all are gathered.” - Chung-Im Kim
