Kim's Museum Project series, which consists of provocative color photographs of people, mostly nude, contained in acrylic boxes and displayed like sculpture, explores themes such as the relationship between human bodies and the environment, sex, war and spirituality. From the artist: "I am neither a Buddhist nor a Christian, just an existentialist who tries to understand the new spiritual world."
