Artist Christine Sun Kim by Harley Weir, inspired by CHANEL Nº5


Depth Growing up, I always felt like the languages that I had access to English, American Sign Language Were languages that I
could never fully express myself in And I felt that way,
really, until I found art Look When you speak… you might have
a fixed facial expression But the tone of
your voice, it inflicts and it kind of
matches the way you feel I have that with facial expressions It becomes my tone,
my pictch, my emotions Persona As a women I feel like I have to say things Over and over
again in order to get heard Sound is not just an
‘input’ that comes through the ear It can really mean a lot of things Sound can be air vibrations It can be a physical sensation it could even be a concept or an idea In my drawings, there are no staff lines Because my idea
of high and low pitches is probably different from yours This is kind of how
I see music inside my head To me, movement and sound… they both kind of mean the same thing Movement is visualizing sound And sound itself is air moving Say I’m at a restaurant And everyone suddenly
turns to look at something If I follow their eyes I can see a broken glass on the floor In this way people
amplify what they’ve heard Like speakers They are bringing sound back to me It fascinates me how
many sonic identities I have
