Kim Uljiro studied visual design and sculpture and is currently working as a media artist. Living in an era in which science fiction seems to be subverting reality on a daily basis, Kim subjectively reconstructs the units that comprise a living organism and explores logical ways to cultivate them in virtual reality.

Using digital 3D video, She explores the similarity between data and organisms from anatomical and physiological perspectives. He takes an interest in the ways that the materials/non-materials of reality and virtual reality operate and grow in different environments/interfaces and collects the landscapes that seem to exist yet remain unreachable that are produced during this process.

Major activities include the Solo exhibition 《Potting》 (2023, Exhibition space RE:PLAT) Virtual exhibition 《Sneak Peek》 (2021, deskdesk.kr ), the group exhibition 《What Things Dream About》(2024, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Seoul), 《Bandi Walk: One Step Closer to Our Earth》 (2022, National Asian Cultural Center),《New Worker 1948-2020》 (2020, Ilmin Museum of Art), 《CAVA LIFE X The Sells》 (2019, New York), participated in the web 3D content 《Quarantine Etudes》visual directing and working as an Instagram AR creator, expanding the scope of work across areas where 3D graphics are interpreted.

Wouldn't the digital environment be close to the afterlife for those who left their original bodies and were reconstructed with data? Using Hiëronymus Bosch's (1450?~1516)'s The Garden of Earthly Delights as a motif, U tried to construct a park of sculptures that escaped belonging to the material.
