About Ara Kim : “Don’t be satisfied with your current status and choose the situation that will require you to challenge yourself.” This statement has always influenced her greatly whenever she was faced with a challenging opportunity or a dilemma between certain choices. In Korea, she was educated as a prepared technician that would meet the society’s requirements and expectations, but as the universe claims, nothing is truly absolutely beneficiary. Korea’s linear educating system has, at times, obstructed my pursuit of investigating her own color, and in this kind of circumstances, have always challenged herself to experience various tasks in order to strengthen her own unique expressions.STATEMENT OF ART:
When I design something, there should be a reason about why I designed like that. If there is no reason, I think that is a craft, not design. I try to research about people's life and figure our the concept or basement for design. The design is closely related to human and their life and this is the difference between art and design. Art tends to focus on the feeling or emotion of artist, but design tends to focus on user's behavior or their needs.
