Byoungho Kim inserts circuitry into metallic sculptures, presenting unique oeuvre of sound sculptures that create electronic sound. His works are described by tubes that stretch out from a certain focal point, with a steady electronic sound. The forms in which long narrow tubes stretch out in one or in many directions from a bulky center point juxtaposes with the swift sense of movement and the metallic coldness of his works. The metallic works are processed precisely according to the regulations of the parts and blue print the artist has designed, following the production method of mass production system, and reflecting the social structure of conventions, customs and standards. Here, the artist inputs calm electronic sound, and the sound flows in a slow simple manner that doesn't interfere with the sculptural element of the work freely traverses between material and non-material, and visual and aural, allowing the viewer to experience a force that overpowers the space.
