She graduated at the seoul National University in visual communication design and achieved certification program at the international center of photography in New York. Ji believes beauty is integral to human nature, and people find beauty in the most difficult circumstances, during emotional chaos and disorder, within social taboos and the breaking of such taboos and even in the face of death. Her current works focus on ideas of “beauty” in contemporary culture, specifically in how women in our culture come to define and enforce an ideal of beauty on themselves. She discuss this cultural phenomena through three photographic, performance, and time-based projects.
