THE FILMS OF KANGMIN KIM

Posted filed underAnimation, Featured, USA, Videos.


Beautiful mix of animation by Kangmin Kim. While animation is usually a time-consuming craft, some people push it further than others. The mixed-media project (stop motion, cut out and paint on glass) was made in the CalArts experimental animation program, and while the storytelling leaves something to be desired, the careful attention to visual detail is entrancing.

38-39˚c

38-39˚c gives us the blueprint of a relationship between a father and son inside the dream the protagonist experiences while under the spell of the elevated temperatures of a bathhouse. Thick sheets of paper in exquisite arrangement represent the two men who are linked by their identical birthmarks, yet cannot seem to look at each other. —- Maureen Selwood
