The Open Source Satellite Initiative
Space programs so far have been the domain of governments and the military-industrial complex - rarely ever have individuals ventured into outer space. But after years of research Korean artist
and independent satellite engineer Hojun Song has found that it is indeed possible to launch and operate a personal satellite at a fairly reasonable price. For the past six years he has been exploring ways to integrate the concept of a personal satellite project into cultural contexts and into his artistic practice. As his first satellite will take off from Kazakhstan this August he came to Lift to share his story, his struggles and his plans.
