Hwang Kim

Hwang Kim born in Seoul, South Korea, studied at Hong-ik University He moved to London and gained a MA in Design Products from the Royal College of Art. He has been working as a designer, artist as well as an activist.

His projects start from the premise that our current global society, with its prevailing techno-political system, faces challenges of an unprecedented scale.

Hwang is asking himself how his activity can contribute to alternative models of living and production by commenting on and addressing issues currently beyond the usual scope of design – political, social or ecological. Hwang is exploring the potential of creating tangible objects or interventions which impact at a behavioural level, by engaging with new methods of production and dissemination.
