The main themes of Yunkyung Kim’s work are skin, clothing and architectural space. Specifically, skin is as the boundary between the inside and outside of the body. The clothing is a metaphor of human-being as a second skin. It is revelation of ego- identity within social relationship as a symbol that has cultural and social functions. And architectural space is as a bodily extension. These concepts are interlinked and cross the borders between them, denying dichotomous thinking and providing a basis for visualizing bodily mobility and spatial flexibility.
