Trent Kim

Trent Kim is the programme leader in BA (Hons) Digital Art & Design at University of the West of Scotland. He started his career in theatre lighting design and then expanded it onto video art, abstract film and Lumia. His works have been shown in South Korea, the US and UK and he has given lectures in various HE institutions including University of Glasgow, Glasgow School of Art, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Kyungsung University (South Korea) and Yale University (US). He is also a part time research student in animation at the Royal College of Art and he organises LUMIA | Symposium annually since 2017. His research primarily revolves around Lumia, Intermedia, Abstraction and Phenomenology.

His current research critically reads the historical practice of Lumia by Thomas Wilfred (b.1889, d.1968) and explores multiple dimensions of human relationship to light through digitally enhanced phenomenological investigations.
