On Thursday, August 23, in The Theatre Hojun Song delivered the keynote presentation ‘Make It Happen’ in which he described how he is making his ideas happen and shares his view on creative work and his visions for the future.

Currently he’s working to launch his own small satellite OSSI-1 in December. By showing a series of work Hojun Song will question some of the conventional thoughts on art, design and science.

The presentation was webcast live at http://mediaevolution.se/theconference/#live. It is believed the presentation will be available to watch later by selecting the Menu option on The Theatre video player.

OSSI-1 has a beacon in the 145 MHz band and a data communications transceiver in the 435 MHz band. It carries a 44 watt LED array to flash Morse Code messages to observers on Earth.
