Miru Kim's work juxtaposes harsh industrial and urban landscapes with the softness and incongruity of her nakedness. Yet the underlying concept goes much further than that. She sees cities as a living organism and she says of her favourite, New York: "The city has an anatomy and a psyche as complex as that of a human being." Thus the abandoned subway stations, tunnels, sewers, catacombs, factories and shipyards form the subconscious of the city. "As I momentarily inhabit these deserted sites, they are transformed from strange to familiar, from harsh to calm, from dangerous to ludic."
