External Impact and Outreach

Eujin continues to be active in the design field. He has exhibited at an international level, including the MagicChef concept at the Panasonic Centre in Tokyo, Japan (2003); and the Clamplight at the NEC Lighting Show in Birmingham, UK (2007). In 2018, The Soundsphere Project was exhibited at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. The Soundsphere is a physical representation of recorded sound. The surface is covered in ridges, which run around it laterally. Each of these ridges represent a set of frequencies within the sound, with low frequency at the bottom of the sphere (the bass); and high frequency at the top (the treble). The closer a ridge is to the top, the higher a band of frequencies it represents. Following these ridges laterally around the sphere is equal to observing the signal change over time (a measure of time). The extent to which the ridge protrudes from the sphere represents the sound intensity at any given moment (the volume) - the more the ridge protrudes, the louder the sound is in that frequency at that given time. The Soundsphere was exhibited in 2018 at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum as the only museum in the USA devoted exclusively to historic and contemporary product design.
