With iyouuswe, (I-You-Us-We), Young Soon Kim and her multifaceted team create a visually provocative, intimate piece that challenges us to examine who we are, and how we relate to ourselves, and each other. It’s a story about developing meaningful relationships in which we struggle to seek a sense of ‘i’ as part of a ‘we’.
