< Biography >
Researcher/Artist/Engineer/Programmer, born in 1987. He studied material science and engineering in KAIST(Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) for Bachelor's Degree. He had studied on interactive art and deformable display as researcher in the doctoral course in Graduate Schools of Culture Technology, KAIST and also runs parallel with creating artwork. In general, his working process is that he collects audience's response on his work, instantly reflects it to his work again and finally creates one gigantic cooperative work, at the result, it has represented with collecting form of audience's action[Virtual Mob, People], or collecting form of sound[City of Voices, Sound Planet] in compliance with the gathering response.
