The Braille Philosophy Object by Seeun Kim

Seeun Kim is an Oxford-based South Korean metal craftswoman, visual artist and social commentator.

On display in the Window Galleries will be a range of metalwork that has been handcrafted by Seeun Kim. Passages from the works of William Shakespeare have been inscribed in braille, to create wearable art pieces.

'I want to develop art that everyone can enjoy together and communicate socially without barriers.'

Seeun Kim became interested in social issues through her personal experience of community courage during the Pandemic.

'Some people might be curious why braille and Shakespeare's words were combined in this project and why I chose William Shakespeare. My experience of life is not great and my knowledge is not wide. However, our lives can be main characters or supporting roles, depending on the perspective. We have a lot of experiences in our lives and sometimes we face crises. Sometimes we cry and fall to our knees because of the frustration, but those who have experienced and overcome a crisis become stronger'
