Taey Kim – Digital Artist and Independent Researcher
Taey Iohe is artist, researcher, cultural producer and filmmaker. The focus of her work has been on multimedia creation in art space.

She uses narrative visual elements within multimedia-based installations. Her subject matter is informed by questions surrounding the status of art writing and the nature of linguistic transitions in mobile geopolitical frame.
