My name is Gb Kim, also known as Ghangbin Kim.
Visual art has been the pursuit of my scholarship in tandem with the history & philosophy of science. I believe my responsibilities lie in using my artistic practice towards a decolonizing of the sciences, a reifying of scientific history and philosophy, and ultimately a collective effort towards a more equitable and humane medical and technological future.
My ongoing work is focused on an imagining of a future science “fiction.” I am invested in the possibility of humane cyborgs: a future where environmental disaster doesn’t end in resource wars, where exponential technological progress in the form of artificial intelligence doesn’t end in absolute surveillance, where science and medicine don’t end in biometric oppression, exploitation, and dehumanization.
I also work with science nonprofits in science education as an illustrator and organizer. Currently I work with iBiology as the primary illustrator on the Explorer’s Guide to Life and at The New School as part time faculty.
