His work is mix media of sound design, art installation, happening and

He is the creator of Metaillusion, which conceived back in 2002 as a vertical journey between art and senses, and first showcased at the Triad Media Gallery in South Korea in 2004; the concept then was featured at the Venice Biennale in 2012.
