Known for their innovative hybridisation of art, design, and technology, d’strict creatively transforms spaces into immersive and visually striking artworks. Having opened the world’s first 4D theme park called “Live Park” in 2011, d’strict became one of the pioneers of user experience-based art technology.

In April this year, their public media art installation, WAVE, at the SMTown Coex Artium in Gangnam, went viral for its alluring illusion of a crashing wave.
