Bora Kim

Final Year Senior Design & Construction

Artist Statement: Bora Kim seeks to paint broad landscapes through garments in the search for deeper truths. Combining text from classical literature and images from contemporary and historical art, Kim combines texts and images to design wearable garments with meaning. Rooted in foundational patternmaking that is both wearable and spiritual, Kim explores how internal experiences can be visually interpreted to help the collective lead an enriched life.

Concept Statement: The Invisible Seasons follows the journey of the blinded soul. Through the passing of each season, one leaves behind the blindness of the past to shine visibility to oneself and to the rest of humanity.
