Eunpa Industries Survival Kits Workshop
Eunpa Indutries + SeungBum Kim have co-developed a set of kits that can save a life in situations of natural disasters or accidents. Named *Eunpa Industries Survival Kit*, this kit is produced in two types—*Survival Radio Kit* for radio communication and *Survival Energy Kit* for solar energy charging. *Survival Radio Kit* includes a transmitter module and a receiver module, which may be assembled into a transceiver for exchanging audio signals on 90MHz-110MHz FM, while *Survival Energy Kit* can be used to make a solar energy charger capable of supplying power to the transceiver. As an inter-connectable circuit having self-produced power and the ability to communicate with other systems, *Eunpa Industries Survival Kit* can be expanded into a series of additional devices, such as a circuit that turns electricity into heat.
In the process of using *Eunpa Industries Survival Kit* to produce these different gadgets, the user can experience firsthand the “solar energy – power – signals – data – radio – heat” cycle. The assembled circuit can be used, for example, to stage a performance of several people doing a radio broadcast. With the kits, one can also develop a device for exchanging secret codes or encode digital data into sound. Participants can join in the workshop sessions to explore numerous ways of communication mediated by gadgets made with parts from the kits. By making the device, participants will get a hands-on experience of natural phenomena and power, signals and data exchange, and the radio and heat circuitry. One of the goals of the kits is to help the user see electromagnetic waves, regarded as unhealthy, as a source of energy and information critical to our survival.
A typical *Eunpa Industries Survival Kits Workshop* will start by a grouping of participants in order to equalize the average skill sets in each table, and participants will take turns to introduce themselves by pointing out the single item crucial for their survival. Following the instructions, they will assemble the kits, test it and actually use them.

김승범 SeungBum Kim ∙
Kim majored in life sciences, but became interested in the end-user’s computing environment after meeting Alan Kay. After receiving an MA in computer education, he founded PINY (Powerful Idea jourNeY) and conducted educational projects and studies related to digital literacy and communication for the end user, including *PINY Camp and Media Art for Three 2* (Art Center Nabi; Seungjoon Choi, Kyungsoo Kim, PINY) and *Seoul U-learning Computer Club House*. Kim organizes various workshops and educational programs to help the general public understand and apply the computing media as well as provides consulting services. Recently, he is trying to expand the workshops on new media through such projects as *Lightball*, *StickyBlocks*, and *Fa.Ke.Board*, which integrate analogue, hardware and craft with digital and software media. Kim is a close colleague in learning and experimentation with artist Donghee Park of Eunpa Industries.
