Camella D. Kim was born in Busan, South Korea and was raised in Canada since 1999. After completing a BA in Visual Arts, and Media Communication Studies, Kim received her MFA in media art from UCLA. Kim explores a wide range of media and often combines traditional and digital tools and materials to manifest her interest in language, communication and to question what it means to be ‘connected’ in digital age. In this process, cultural-specific emotions or rituals are explored and often ‘humor’ plays a key role to arouse the audiences' imagination and provoke them into thinking more critically and creatively about sensitive or controversial issues. Kim’s recent works motivate the audience to voluntarily participate and to contribute their time and labor to manifest the significance of physical presence in interpersonal relationships and communication.
