Miru Kim: Making art of New York's urban ruins

At the 2008 EG Conference, artist Miru Kim talks about her work. Kim explores industrial ruins underneath New York and then photographs herself in them, nude -- to bring these massive, dangerous, hidden spaces into sharp focus.

Her artwork also reminds me of a Blackstar song called "Respiration," which treated the city as a living being.
