A contemporary artist and founder of the Techism movement (2014), Krista Kim’s work explores the concept of the digital consciousness. Her interest in digital technology and its revolutionary effects on human perception, media, social structures, and communication had led her to work in both digital and physical mediums. Using digital software to provide meditative experiences of color and light, Kim has developed her signature language of shifting gradients since 2012. Influenced by artists such as Rothko, Duchamp, and James Turrell, Kim’s goal as an artist is to express complete digital consciousness and to shift viewers to this awareness — a truth behind our digital age that can ultimately result in something beautiful.

Most recently 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 in March, 2021. The piece received global acclaim and in March 2021 was the highest-grossing sale on an NFT on SuperRare.
