Jason Krugman


Splyt Coral
 Cave Urchins
 DG-Boulder / Crystals
 Particle Mass
 Diatom Cluster

He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Economics and Fine Arts from Tufts University. After graduation, he focused on the economy and finance rather than dreaming of a career as a great artist. He worked for financial companies such as Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch, who were in charge of credit transactions right before the financial crisis that started in the United States.


Early in 2007, when he had no inkling of the looming disaster, he returned to school and studied technology and art which he was interested in. Having seen the process of creating interactive art during his studies, he was impressed by the surge in electrical and connector usage when he went to NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) to explore microcontrollers, solders, digital fabrication and new materials. The theme of his thesis in ITP was 'Wind-Sensitive LED Array'. The thesis's blogging by Kanye West has been launched, making it the first time to receive a commercial request from a large music festival agency to produce a larger, more portable version.


Later, many people requested him for permanent LED works to be installed in large buildings and houses. Currently, Krugman is absorbed with designing and producing new types of LED works.

Lee Byungchan is an artist based on Seoul, drawing attention from the international community by presenting a large scale 'Kinetic Intrusion' with its colorful and unique shapes. The structure of modern society he witnessed in college was contradictory and abnormal. After agonizing over what causes large organisms called cities to move, his answer was "consumption ecosystem." This has become the main motif of his work and, unlike the natural world, visual representations of consumption behavior in urban communities. He created a third kind of life (Urban Creatures), have light and sound containing the city’s stimulating and dynamic colors, as well as a universal material symbolizing consumption and waste in modern society.


Lee held his first solo show at AG Gallery in 2010. Recently, he has been actively participating in <Pyeongchang Biennale & Gangneung Folk Art Festival 2017> and <Milan Design Week 2018>.
