Ethics of Wearable Art is a video interview with Niche award winning artist, Yong Joo Kim.  This video was made as part of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for her project, Sublime Experiment: Outward Expression of Inner Beauty.  Kim questions what the value is of an art object made from 'ordinary' materials.

"On the other hand, the body of work I'm presenting here usually provokes questions like 'I wonder what that is made of?' And when you find out, you experience a moment of surprise, which further provokes questions like 'I wonder why I didn't think of that?' or 'I wonder what other mundane materials we can uncover beauty from?'.
I find the experience of these moments of surprise and inquiry to be priceless in their ability to rekindle our child-like curiosity and wonder, as it opens the world up for us to re-imagine."
