As people desire to learn and discover the latest updates, facts, and techniques while holding onto earlier records as resources, Kim adapts the idea of society balancing between liberal and conservative. They use plexiglass to reveal the new generation and take Korean traditional subject matters as references to depict their background, experimenting with abstract and conventional shapes for decorative elements. The light reflected by mirrored areas creates smudged figures on the floor or the walls, portraying how history and current events are full of mystery and sometimes far from the truth.
