The latest Yong Joo Kim jewelry line Sublime Experiment is an attempt to explore how wearable art objects can provoke dialogue. The award-winning South Korean artist Yong Joo Kim breaks boundaries with her remarkable Velcro accessories, proving to create beauty from mundane objects. Kim's wearable art collections have been seen in multiple museums and galleries, yet she wants to bring her work to the public.

According to the Sublime Experiment website, "wearable objects are notorious for being marketed to promote superficial beauty. Having learned how inner beauty arises through persistent trust and sincere empathy, [Yong Joo Kim] would like to share this story as widely as possible." By making wearable art out of non-precious materials, Kim demonstrates how to make a true statement piece.
