Sooyon has produced a series of four downloadable Virtual Backgrounds that are ready to be used in video meetings. The work was created in response to the experience of home-working during the COVID-19 pandemic, but also the phenomenon of YouTubers creating widely viewed content in their own domestic spaces — what Sooyon regards as the digital fabrication of one’s presence.


Rather than a mere habitat, in these contexts one’s ‘home’ becomes a personal, theatrical stage and the ‘background’ is allowed to speak for you and create value. Even at home, we increasingly internalise a performer-audience dynamic.

Sooyon Kim is a visual artist based in London.
