Gwangju’s media art is ‘the laboratory of Light’ and the city is continuing on its creative experiment by combining three lights of traditional art, history of democratic human rights and high level of science technology in a modern methodology. The primary reason was to combine the artistic, historic and industrial assets of Gwangju to the field of media art and to lead a sustainable urban development by restructuring related industries. In other respects, it was to share Gwangju’s artistic and industrial experiences and achievements, those related to media art, with the world society and co-develop alongside creative cities.
