20-year old South Korean supermodel Daul Kim was found hanged in her Paris apartment yesterday. Kim, a regular at fashion weeks world round, was known outside of the fashion world for her quirky blog and as a painter. Her body was discovered by her boyfriend, who informed police that Daul's mother had long been scheduled to arrive in Paris today. The model's blog chronicles a recent series of ups and downs, with mentions of being "lost", "mad depressed", and cryptic definitions of protons as objects stable by themselves. Her last entry was a video of a dance track titled "I Go Deep". Eerie, and sad.
It's probably bad that the proton entry, and the assumption of significance just assigned, echoes of "eskimo" in Heathers.
