Interview with CLAUDE

Seoul based visual artist CLAUDE explains his creative process during his last residency in the Satosphere, the 360 dome of the SAT, in August 2022.

The result was an immersive performance of his project Trial, on which he collaborated with sound artist Shin Hyejin. This show premiered at SAT on August 23rd as part of our dome program for the 23 edition of the MUTEK festival.

The Society for Arts and Technology would like to thank the MRIF, MUTEK and the Nabi Arts Center for their contribution to the realization of this project.


About Trial

The sudden fear one feels when imagining the infinity of the universe comes from the feelings when one faces the finiteness and weakness of their own existence. The work Trial is intricately designed for us to think about what we can have and what attitudes we can bolster as soon as the morality that one has built and the laws the history has established become totally powerless. This project is a real-time live audio visual performance displayed through an immersive video and sound system. Light and sound, which are constantly generated and dissipated over time, create a different dimension in space and that opens up new environments.



CLAUDE is a media artist based in Seoul. By applying motion and real-time environmental data to algorithms, He presents an abstract movement in digital particles by capturing the organic changes of humans and nature, and mysterious vitality of them. It focuses on delivering the fundamental beauty of nature by capturing the overwhelming emotions people feel as if experiencing the vast nature in media art.
