The melting distorted cupcake
reveals her daunting glucose level.
As people desire to learn and discover the latest facts and techniques while holding onto earlier records as a resource, Annie Amelyte Kim adapted the idea of society being balanced between liberal and conservative. As a depiction of her background, she is using plexiglass to reveal the new generation and takes Korean traditional objects as references but focuses on abstract forms instead of actual ancient patterns for small elements attached on her sculptures to show the mingling of the perfect looking imperfect world.
Furthermore, not only history, but also current event sometimes concludes leaving things unanswered and therefore mysterious. She decided to present her works by showing the reflection of the sculptures by beaming colorful lights from different directions which ends up with smudged figuration.
