Krista Kim is a digital artist and founder of Techism (2014), whose work explores the concept of digital consciousness. Kim is also the Co-Founder of Creative Immersive Production Studio, 0Studio.ai. Her interest in digital technology and its revolutionary effects on human perception, media, social structures, and communication led her to work in both digital and physical realms.
In 2020, Kim continued to explore the creative potential to utilize screens as digital instruments of well-being by creating 'Mars House': a completely virtual environment using her digital zen philosophy as the first “Metaverse home” for sale as an NFT in history. The piece received global acclaim and in March 2021 was the highest-grossing sale on an NFT on SuperRare.
In 2014, as a response to society's over-reliance on technology, she started the Techism Movement, a philosophy that recognizes technological innovation as an artistic discipline, encouraging artists to promote digital humanism for our digital culture. Krista Kim’s “Continuum” sound and light installation was featured in Times Square on 96 screens every midnight in Feb 2022. She is a Cultural Leader for World Economic Forum and wrote a Metaverse essay for the New York Times, and is the first Metaverse artist of the permanent LACMA collection. Krista is a Cultural Leader of the World Economic Forum, and was chosen by Louis Vuitton as a #Louis200 visionary and created the first Lamborghini NFT with Steve Aoki.
