I graduated from Seoul National University in 2005, as an art historian and archaeologist, and continued my studies at Design Academy Eindhoven, the Man and Leisure department. After my graduation in 2014, I based myself in the city of Eindhoven as a designer, connector and entrepreneur. While my studies in South Korea have taught me the value of culture, history and context, my more recent studies in the Netherlands have taught me the power of creativity and the potential of building bridges between people. Now, I am exploring what can happen when we bring knowledge and design together in order to create valuable collaborations in the city.
Eindhoven embraces social innovation, and we are dedicated to develop and realise projects that address some of the city’s social, cultural and economic challenges. I am confident we are making a difference in the city but we are also learning new things every day, in the middle of all of our projects and collaborations, and I hope we will be able to spread and share our knowledge and experience with other cities and communities as well.
I graduated from DAE with a project called “Breadcrumb workshops” and it is all about creating inspiring technology workshops for communities. I believe modern technology can be a tool of empowerment, and I am particularly passionate about introducing web technology and physical computing to people without a technological background. Some of our work reflects this, and we are always keen to work together with institutions and communities to spread our knowledge.
