Hojun Song | South Korean

So far, almost all space programs were led by governments or their military. Very few were initiated by amateur groups like AMSAT. Individual fantasies were fostered by institutions. It’s time to have a private connection between you and the universe. Open Source Satellite Initiative shows you a way to do it! The film follows Hojun Song’s journey in developing a totally D.I.Y. space program (right from building to launching to operating), leading up to his launch of the first personal satellite in space in 2013.

Hojun Song

Hojun Song is an artist who prefers to discover niches of technology and to mix them together. By detecting these niches he uses them as means of social commentary or as objects to express aesthetics. He likes to use microprocessors, sensors, PCB, and aluminium as textures and paints. His work has been exhibited internationally, and has been featured by reputed publications like BBC, The Telegraph, Reuter, Radio Nederland Worldwide, Deutschland Radio, New Scientist Magazine, Wired (UK/US) Magazine, Vogue Korea, Dazed & Confused Korea, etc. Hojun Song’s work is about creating narratives and drawing out questions around absurd the objects he makes, like radiation jewelry and ‘the strongest weapon in the world’. Recently, he launched his own small satellite, via the Open Source Satellite Initiative. Through his work, he likes to question some of the conventional thoughts on art, design and science.
