Raiden INST was founded in 2020. Named "lightning", it is a symbolic meaning of its physical principles - lightning is a discharge phenomenon within the cloud (within the art world), between the cloud and the cloud (interdisciplinary), or between the cloud and the earth (art and mass culture), which means communication, collaboration and the transfer of energy.
As a non-profit arts institution, it explores the boundaries of art, technology, and nature through interdisciplinary collaboration, as well as the intrinsic connection between technology and human cognition and senses; At the same time, it is committed to practicing the possibility of display outside the white box, and exists as a curator, artist, etc., with strong flexibility and cooperation.
The "Thunderbolt Institute" hopes to provide a platform for the incubation, display and dissemination of young artists' practice through the attention to the reality and social context. Therefore, it has united the resources of all parties to prepare the "Youth Science and Technology Art Support Plan" and planned the science and technology art exhibition "No Blackout". In addition, we have launched a digital curatorial project based on virtual space, "Cloud and Cloud", and an interdisciplinary project "Capacitance", which connects technology companies and artists.
