Kimba Kerner’s “7 Sweet Sins” Softies




Graduating from my alma mater Parsons the New School for Design, Kimba Kerner’s thesis project (on display until the end of the day tomorrow at the Chelsea Art Museum in NYC) is “7 Sweet Sins,” a collection of softies including a backstory and video in the installation.
