(Architectural Digest, March 14, 2021) “Kim ventured into NFTs while exploring meditative design during quarantine; her hope was to use the influx of digital life as an opportunity to promote wellbeing. Comprised entirely of light, the visual effects of her crypto-home are meant to omit a zen, healing atmosphere. The artist also partnered with musician Jeff Schroeder of The Smashing Pumpkins to create a calming musical accompaniment. So what makes the file a compelling purchase? Beyond the promise of buying into the lucrative NFT market, the home and all of the furniture in it can be built in real life by glass furniture-makers in Italy, as well as through MicroLED screen technology. Kim also has a strong visions the art being projected, as well. “Everyone should install an LED wall in their house for NFT art.” says the artist. “ This is the future, and Mars House demonstrates the beauty of that possibility.”

All of the furniture of Mars House is designed with tempered glass and fabrics, using renewable material, with Krista’s artwork integrated in every detail. She wanted this space to showcase her development for Meditative Design, a new definition of avant garde luxury for the digital age. Sustainability, anti-microbial and zen. 

Krista learned the meaning of art at the Ryoanji Temple Zen garden in Kyoto. Art is a mirror of the mind. Her art is an exploration of Digital Zen. Digital environment is relentlessly distracting and addictive. As an attempt to bring new awareness of digital consciousness, her art strips away to the core element of light, color and sound. Her intention is to create a meditative environment on our screen, like a digital Zen garden.  

Kyoto’s architecture was built for Zen consciousness of the community. She was inspired to expand on this tradition for the digital age. LED screens can be used as digital instruments of well-being. Krista predicts that micro LED technology will be used as architectural substrates for ceilings, floors and walls. Her thesis is that one’s home can heal with the power of art and technology. The new luxury is leading edge technology purposed for health and well-being.
