Born and raised in Seoul, Korea, Hoonida studied sculpture in college, and moved to Japan to study sound art and technology. Currently, he is working on ‘sculpting’ an atmosphere using installations and performance engaging haptics and sound. He has also created kits for technology art and media literacy designed to give learners the experience of transforming basic electrical digital signals into light, sound, and movement, which he has been using in various new media workshops in Korea and Japan. His work has been exhibited in “EXTENDED SENSES” (Japan, NTT InterCommunication Center, 2008), “Lexical Gap / Da Vinci creative festival”(Korea, Seoul Art Space Geumcheon, 2014), “CONSONARE / sound light scape ”(Japan, 3331Arts Chiyoda, 2015), and a solo exhibition “Sound Apparatus Series H_01” (Seoul, GanaArtSpace, 2013).
