Czong Institute for Contemporary Art 

Starting from the artist’s studio in 1994, Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) became a unique cultural space founded and cultivated by artists.

Unlike many modern architectural sites designed and built in a short period, this unique art complex bears 25 years of consistent endeavors of an individual artist and his team.

 We encourage you to walk around this space and discover our philosophy, style, and history here at CICA.

Since 2014, CICA Museum has networked with over 4,000 international artists while organizing experimental publications & international exhibitions including the CICA international exhibition & publication on New Media Art, Art Yellow Book, and Artist Statement.

To overcome uniform dissemination of contemporary art from the “center of Art,” we aim to introduce local artists and cultures from different regions to global audiences and connect them with each other.

In 2017, CICA Museum formed the CICA New Media Art Conference (CICA NMAC) which has become an annual conference.

For CICA NMAC, CICA Museum collaborated with Gimpo City in 2017, Anyang City Cultural & Art Foundation in 2018, and Seoul National University in 2019. CICA Museum also organized “Art Teleported,” the Art Show and Conference for Nomad Artists, held in New York in 2019 and 2020.

Through exhibitions, publications, conferences, and diverse experimental platforms, we hope to create a global network among local artists, designers, audiences, and communities so that they can make, appreciate, and live in art in their regions and cultures.

Eternal Energy

(The collection)

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it always was, always has been, everything that ever existed always exists, it's moving into form, through form, and out of form.

Linder's digital paintings in this series all started as real-world pencil illustrations, scanned at 4k resolution, and then carefully painted, with hundreds of layers.

These fractal portraits were created through infinitely complex patterns driven by recursion through applied digital paint layers.

The supreme mind came to me in a dream. I have been exploring new ways of painting through digital technology in combination with real-world art tools. I decided to use these new fractal design tools to create the essence of the human condition and what that might look like in the future.

As we enter the metaverse more and more, we need a representation of who we are as individuals. The idea of the Supreme Mind as a physical avatar called to me. Thus began my pursuit of finding the essence of human portraits as futuristic digital avatars. A new beginning for my work, and a bridge between real and unreal.

Strength, beauty, power, and energy are just a few things the human condition yearns for. If all of those things could be wrapped in energy and presented to the world as an inner aura each one of us would be unique in the way, we look.

The one thing we share as collective humanity is intelligence. In all of its varying degrees, we always seek more. What if there were no limits to this incredible resource? If we could view this shared idea in human form, we would be able to accomplish a great many things.
