“City Collage is a short-looped video collage series. I juxtaposed various city scenes to make utopic landscapes. Each work uses over 15-20 videos as its sources. Video is a time-based medium and contains movement. Therefore, when I combine videos to create a united landscape, It requires a precise connection of all moving elements. In City Collage 2, for instance, I could make a boat floats on the Lake for a long time by joining several videos seamlessly. The precision of connecting moving images is the key to my magical utopia. Using editing technic as a tool, I accomplish my imagination realizing into the digital world.” Hyemi Kim, 2021.
