At the 2008 EG Conference, artist Miru Kim talks about her work. Kim explores industrial ruins underneath New York and then photographs herself in them, nude — to bring these massive, dangerous, hidden spaces into sharp focus.

    Incredible contrast between her clothed, shy, intellectual self and the naked images she creates.

    Wow that was great, thanks for posting that!
    All the way through I couldn’t help but think how brave she is for exposing her naked body to such dangerous places. I hope she doesn’t get hurt or sick because what she is doing is really amazing. I love what she said at the end about humanizing the spaces, it’s a lovely idea.
