SeungBum Kim / PROTOROOM

Originally a student of life sciences, SeungBum became interested in digital design after meeting Alan Kay. He founded PINY (Powerful Idea jourNeY), a media and education group that designed and conducted educational projects and studies related to digital literacy and communication for end users. Through workshops, educational programs, and consulting, he aims to help the general public understand computing media intuitively and use them for creativity and self-expression. His recent work moves beyond computing media but focuses on integrating analogue, hardware, and craft with digital and software media, which has been demonstrated in various workshops such as LightBall, StickyBlocks, Fa.Ke.Board and Input Output Things. He formed the new media art group PROTOROOM with sound artist Hoonida Kim in 2014.
