TAEX presents Continuum by Krista Kim at The Digital Art Mile Basel

TAEX is proud to present artworks from the Continuum project by the renowned artist Krista Kim at Digital Art Mile Basel from the 10th to 16th of June 2024.

 

We’re bringing to Switzerland a digital Zen landscape created by Krista Kim in response to the disconnection and distraction pervading society today due to technology overuse. Krista sought to transform digital screens into spaces for mindfulness rather than distraction. The collection includes 10 unique NFTs, segments from the whole Continuum artwork, available for collecting on our platform.

 

The artwork consists of subtle gradients on the screens that gradually shift over time, creating an ever-evolving tranquil scene. Krista’s inspiration came from her time spent in the serene Ryoanji Temple Garden in Kyoto combined with seeing the potential of digital interfaces as portals to peace.  

 

Krista Kim’s intention is for Continuum to serve as a bridge between digital and human - a place for us to reconnect with our presence and tranquillity. This guided meditation we are about to embark on is meant to transport us into that state.

 

Krista Kim is a contemporary artist and a founder of the Techism movement. Having an interest in both digital and physical realms she developed her signature technique that involves a wide range of media including digital software, light, video, glass and plexi. Kim focuses on the concept of digital consciousness and the effects produced by digital technology on human perception, media, social structures, and communication.

 

Krista is a contributing Metaverse Editor for Vogue Singapore. She is a cultural leader at the World Economic Forum (2023) and a member of the Meridian Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. Kim is a keynote speaker of major metaverse conferences all over the globe.

 

Kim’s works are featured in the permanent collections of Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris (2023), LACMA museum in Los Angeles (2022). Her works were shown at major art events such as Triennale di Milano (2022), Times Square Arts (2022), Venice Architecture biennale (2021), Paris biennale (2018) and art fairs. Kim’s exhibition list includes significant museums and galleries in Europe, US, Canada, China and Singapore. Among her artistic collaborations with brands are projects for Louis Vuitton, Lamborghini, Mercedes Benz AMG and Lanvin.

 

Kim’s artworks were featured on the cover of Bazaar Art, Vogue Hong Kong, and featured in AD, Artnet, NYT, Dezeeen, Vogue (UK, Singapore), FT, The Times, Forbes, New York magazine, The Art Newspaper and many others.

 

Kim holds a master's degree in fine arts at the LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore (2014) and a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Toronto (2001).

 

Kim has been featured in UNESCO's list of “50 Minds for The Next 50” and recognized as “the new digital Rothko” by Forbes. Her name appears in the ranks of top 30 Most Influential People of the Metaverse by Read and Write Magazine (2021), top 100 by Architectural Digest (2021), and top 50 “NFTy50” by Fortune Magazine (2022). Kim won the Excellence in Digital Art prize from the Createurs Design Awards (2024).

 

space31 is one of the main Digital Art Mile venues located in a reimagined retailer’s warehouse. It will spotlight the premier NFT galleries, platforms, and projects. and host the Digital Art Mile’s public lounge-an inviting space for visitors to relax and enjoy refreshments amidst the buzz of innovation. 

 

TAEX is a curated digital art platform that is building a new community whose aspirations spread beyond the material. We showcase and co-produce works by leading artists with critical acclaim.

Digital art as a social remedy in solving technologically-induced problems

Digital technologies make our everyday life easier in many ways. However, excessive use may bring us some struggles such as anxiety from doom scrolling, insomnia, eye strain, and a feeling of social isolation (powered by 5G). At a glance, it could seem that screens and what we see on them are the overbearing evil of today. Hence, one might rightfully question how to “recover” from technologically-induced problems? One of the answers, other than straight-up digital detox, is digital art!
