Miru Kim: Making art of New York's urban ruins - TED Talks

    Miru Kim is a photographer and filmmaker with a love of the new and unknown. In her best-known body of work, the Naked City Spleen series, she investigates left-behind industrial spaces, infiltrates them with her camera, and then photographs herself in the space, nude. Like Wallace Stevens' jar upon a hill, the presence of her small body brings these massive, damp and dirty, unknown spaces into a new focus.

    Extending her aesthetic, she has made a film of Strindberg's A Dream Play set in an abandoned tunnel underneath New York City. Kim is also the founder of Naked City Arts, a group that helps promote new artists and unconventional work.
