Engineering meets art <Prof. Hyun-Chul Shim collaborated with National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art


How would it be to see the world through the eyes of AI?

f you are curious about the answer to this question, please visit the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) Multiverse Arts 2021: Multiverse Hall this summer.

KAIST (President Kwang-Hyung Lee) Professor Hyun-Chul Shim of the Department of Electrical Engineering presented a space composition combining engineering and art as an AI in EE model in collaboration with Artists Jung-Joo Ahn & So-Jeong Jeon’s work Phantom in a Machine at MMCA. This work will be exhibited at MMCA, Seoul, from May 14 to August 1, 2021 at the MMCA Performing Arts 2021: Multiverse Hall.

The third work of MMCA Performing Arts 2021: Multiverse, <Phantom in a Machine> is a video installation work set in an art museum, where a drone with autonomous driving technology appears as a performer with an ability to look like a ghost. The drone flies between installations and transmits the captured images in real-time, which can be viewed through YouTube.


This technology utilizes the indoor flight technology of the research team that won the 2019 and 2020 AI Grand Challenge in the control intelligence section. The research team is still working on this technology with the support of the Ministry of Science and ICT’s artificial intelligence industry source technology development project.
