Ji Hoon Kim grew up in the wake of South Korea’s “economic miracle,” in which bigger buildings signified a better life. In New York, he is witnessing a similarly dubious commitment to oversized real estate development, and in Ivory Towers, he questions this practice by revising it. Starting with photographs of buildings slated for demolition, Ji Hoon inflates the size of the old buildings to create a fantasy New York streetscape.
