I am a multimedia artist and researcher in HCI/D. I am currently working on my Ph.D.dissertation at the University of Twente, the Netherlands, on "Poetic Engagements with Technology". I have been creating a body of interactive kinetic installations to bring aesthetics and embodied interaction possibilities into everyday experiences.

My practice-based research takes a hybrid approach (traditional craft, digital fabrication, and physical computing) by integrating the theoretical foundations of art, technology, and design research. I draw cross-disciplinary thinking and Experimental Making from my education (Fine Art, Digital Art, Human-Computer Interaction, and Design) and my diverse work experiences(Korea, USA, Europe).

I studied fine art at Hongik University in Seoul, South Korea (BFA, MFA). I further developed my artistic practice in digital art (MFA), and expanded my research perspective in Human-Computer Interaction(MS), Bloomington, Indiana University by creating critical designs under the Intel Social Computing Grant. I worked as an assistant professor of New Media Studies at Indiana University before moving to Europe.

My life

I get really excited about swimming, fishing and making.
