Biography

 Born in the 25th of November in 1978, with BA of psychology and french literature in the University if Yonsei, Seoul, this artist achieved Msc of Digital composition and performance in the University of Edinburgh, UK. Until his late twenties, he had dreamed of rock/ jazz guitar player and composer, but while studying and experiencing in the boundary of digital music in UK, he changed his life career as a digital media artist with a broader scope of interdisciplinary approaches of digital algorithm.

 

 Interactive digital media/ sound installation is the main axis of his works, in which spectators can experience hidden energy circulation left behind our recognition in real-time audiovisual transformation processes. It is to create virtual and organic construction in the ecological way between spectators and the installation works. In this process, the artist brings philosophical messages concerned with subconscious sensibility, time physics and linguistic potentials into our recognition of ordinary world. As his artistic view deals with real-time recognition, the works range from interactive installation to live audio performances.

 

 The career experiences include [Kinitiras Performing Art residency(Athens), 2019], [Asyaaf & Hidden artist international Festival, 2018], [Seoul modern art international Festival, 2017], [Seoul New media Art international Festival, 2016], and group exhibitions and performances of [GYLAF, South Korea], [Artwork Holiday, Paris], [Frame-reFrame, Seoul], [Modern playwriter competition, Tokyo], [Lost portraits, South Korea] including 3 solo exhibitions during the recent years.
