Yelim Kim in next in our series Senior Spotlights.

Briefly describe your artist practice.
I am primarily a music inspired video artist, and I make some sculptures on the side. A lot of my work focuses on identity in the political context with the personal experience of living inside my own body.

What are you currently working on?
During this quarantine, I am working on my new series of short videos that translate Korean onomatopeias into looping moving images.

How has your artistic practice changed since you started working entirely from home?
It’s honestly been difficult to stay motivated while cooped up indoors, but I am learning to adjust my goals and practice with the limitations. During summer and winter breaks, my art practice tends to shift from serious to a more light hearted tone. I think it’s nice that the limitations I’m put in are helping me to dive into my goofy mode while staying true to the content I want to be creating for myself as an artist.
