Feces Standard money (fSM) is an important theme pursued by the Science Walden Center. Science Walden team has been researching into fSM for the implementation of circular economy thorugh the economic and environmental dimensions. Through this alternative currency system, one can convert human feces into biogas, use that energy as a fuel for heating, and even receive a cash refund for that energy produced. This study of retrieving value in discarded materials has inspired many scientists and artists, thus a range of science-art fusion projects are also underway.
First lecture will be delivered by Research Assistant Professor Dey Kim under the topic of the ‘Connection between Mind and Matter’. Through this lecture, Dey Kim will share his experiences from the Seoul Upcycling Workshop took place in November 2019. Held under the theme of ‘Sense Fantasy: Listen’, this three-week workshop aimed at evoking the sense of hidden connections around us and once again affirming the idea of upcycling.
Following this, Artist Yunchul Kim will deliever a lecture on ‘Connection between Arts and Science‘. His latest works are focusing on the artistic potential of fluid dynamics, metamaterials (photonic crystals) and especially on the context of magnetohydrodynamics. Through the lecture, he will talk about the areas where science, art, and technology meet.
Artist Sabina Hyoju Ahn who creates light and sound, using data generated by a wide variety of microorganisms makes a presentation on the theme of ‘Connection between Humans and Microorganisms‘.
Last lecture will be delivered by Artist Byungjun Kwon under the topic of the ‘Human-to-Human Connections’. He is a Korean electronic musician now based in The Netherlands. While his interests range from choreography, sound typography and sound design for public spaces, Byungjun composes for theatre and dance as well as for traditional Korean instruments. In this lecture, he will talk about the meaning of connectivity and communication through his recent sound design project for public spaces, namely <Jammyeong-ri Gongmyung Village>.
