In 2015, Kim started creating 3D objects and paintings about images of relatively unknown science stories and mysterious events in an encyclopedia. Titled Encyclopedia, it focuses on the story of those who attempted to fly in the sky which was presented first in Germany in 2016.

She constructs her own world without being constrained by the rules or language of art. ..
