Laura Hyunjhee Kim in Conversation with Blair Murphy

Applied Forces

Join AAC curator Blair Murphy for a conversation with artist Laura Hyunjhee Kim whose work was recently included in Applied Forces at AAC. Kim’s current practice-based research projects explore emerging consumer technologies and their influence on human interactions and experiences of the body, topics that have only become more relevant as so many of us rely on technological connection as a substitute for physical proximity. Recorded primarily on a smartphone and disseminated through social media, the experiments in Kim’s ongoing project The Living Lab encourage viewers to consider the ways we speak, perform, interact with one another, and navigate this world alone together.

Laura Hyunjhee Kim received the inaugural ArtSlant Award in New Media (2013) and was one of the first artists-in-residence at the Internet Archive (2017). In 2020, Kim received the Judson-Morrissey Excellence in New Media Award and Black Cube Video Art Award. She received a B.S. in Art from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and M.F.A. from the New Genres Department at the San Francisco Art Institute. She is a Ph.D. Candidate in Intermedia Art, Writing and Performance (IAWP) at the University of Colorado Boulder’s College of Media, Communication and Information.
