I am an expert maker of analog devices that utilize programming and digital signals. Fields of expertise include, but not limited to, sculpture, casting, carpentry, and welding. I developed depth in each of these fields based on abundant professional experience obtained while running my own commercial art business. I wish to further study making innovative devices and sustainable installations that can benefit the lives of human and animals. I would also like to expand skills in social contribution through the learning opportunities at MIT so that my effort in social services will have an extensive impact on the world.

It was the first painting when I dreamed of becoming an artist, before studying art.

To speak for the voice of people with economic difficulties, I painted the historical issue named the Donghak Peasant Movement, the first major demonstration of equality in Korea.
