School for Poetic Computation
Opening Day
10.16.2013
Hi I’m Taeyoon.
I build circuits.
Magnetic, electronic and poetic circuits
with Transistors, Capacitors and Resistors
building circuit is like building tiny cities
Sculpting with signals
Making memories
Adding and subtracting numbers
software fiction and hardware noir

Input=Output
Signal=Circuit
things get complex very soon
(making shift register with D-type flip flops)
this is a good place to be.
July, 2008
Interactivos? Eyebeam

a bit of personal history leading up to sfpc
I organized Interactivos? with Zach Lieberman,
Frederic Kirchner and Medialab Prado team at
Eyebeam.

and spending time together
September, 2008

OFLAB, Ars Electronica
We built a lab
in an art festival

visitors could
submit an idea in
the first floor
second floor was full of hackers realizing public’s
dream over night.
Top floor hand lounge area to relax and enjoy art
a place for everyone
making something strange.
Doing something silly is good.
building community and friendship
is more important than code.
Spring, 2009

Zach also invited me to teach at Design and Technology
Department, Parsons School of Design with him.
For few years, I organized free classes

Student debt, unfair access to education and technology, and
commoditization of social practice in art...

There are many ...
