“Die Zauberflöte – Magic Flute” (Music Instrument Workshop) – Cooperate with Kinderunikunst 2018 Summer Programme


“Die Zauberflöte – Magic Flute” (Music Instrument Workshop) – Cooperate with Kinderunikunst 2018 Summer Programme

By cooperating with Kinderunikunst, we two, ( Violet Dahyun Kim, Pavel Naydenov) conducted a music instrument workshop with children.  This programme was aiming to help children to design and build their own music instrument by using recycling materials such as paper box, plastic garbage, leftovers from last workshops.


First, we let them to sketch their ideas on paper and talk about what they want to play with this instrument and how possibly they could play with them.

Many of them were using strings and wooden beads in order to make string instruments and maracas.



In the end of the day, they could put their instrument all together and make a presentation in front of everyone, how they developed their sketch to final products and what their instruments sound like.

Some of the children even wrote poetic – blueprint.


The age of children were quite dynamic, some of them were under 10, some were over 12. Most of them are not only focusing on music fuction, but also on diverse multiple fuctions like screening films, decoration, moreover transportation fuctions.

Their small exhibition took a place at the corner of Social Design Studio, for two days.

Feminism Podcast “PadPadPadPad” (2017~)


Feminism Podcast “PadPadPadPad” (2017~ ongoing project)

link :

In order to create discussions about feminism (especially for Korean society), this podcast has been planned by us, me Violet Dahyun and Kyeonglim Jang, who are studying for the master degree at the Univeristy of Applied Arts Vienna. Since South Korea is a very conservative and discriminative country, there are variety of issues which are relevant to feminism topic.  Although South Korea is regared as a developed country, some social issues are neglected there without being solved or discussed. This podcast project is therefore pointing out these unsolved problems due to offer opportunities not only to reflect ourselves but also to open up the conversation about them.  Since it is planned for Korean society, all the episodes we proceeded were spoken in Korean, however we’re planning to translate all episodes in English soon.

Podpodpodpod is basically an onomatopoeic word in Korean which describes the sound of grinding crops by means of mortar, but this word is oftenly used as a slang, together with brain, thus it means eventually “Your brain has been grinded”. We choose this title to address the people who keeps vanquishing women’s voices from the society.
