/Yejin Kim is a product designer and maker. Born in Korea, Kim studied visual arts through the International Baccalaureate program in Germany. She is currently in the process of completing her BFA in Designed Objects at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her art and design work has been exhibited in Germany and the United States.
The bulk of her studio practice comes from hands-on projects and learning in the shop, creating a link between mass-production and appreciation of craftsmanship. Influenced by growing up in diverse social, political and geographical environments, she re-interprets the cultural elements through her lenses. Imbued with ‘curiosity,’ her emotionally provokative objects encourage recognition of the aspiring cultures.
