Yong Joo Kim's 2011 Body of work explores the concept of inner-beauty by investigating the relationship between the process of exploration and trust endowed to a material by an artist.

The body of work is a development of her thesis work at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where she let go of her usual repertoire of precious metals to explore the world of unnoticed yet beautiful objects. Through this processes, she witnessed--over and over again--that no matter how mundane or insignificant a material seems at first, as long as the process of exploration began with a firm belief in its potential, she was eventually surprised to uncover its hidden qualities that she did not know existed.
