Cognitive Archeologist, User Interface Designer, Visual Interaction Designer, and Cognitive Scientist. Kim is fascinated with natural and human-made patterns, cognition and the process of creativity. She thinks there is an area of knowledge representation in cognition she has named 'protoglyphic'. Proto: ‘indicating the first or earliest or original'; Glyph: ‘a symbol, icon, pictograph, etc. used as a graphic representation'. Kim thinks the mind may have a set of universal, abstract, geometric protoglyphs it uses as a basis for knowledge representation. Protoglyphs may be the fundamental patterns that underlie cognition.
