It's been a very turbulent time: the newly opened Kunsthalle Gwangju

NEWS! etoy is happy to announce a new collaboration with space pioneer
and Gwangju local, Hojun Song, initiator of the Open Source Satellite
Initiative (OSSI)! Hojun set out to develop

and possibly peaceful colonization. The fringe initiative is artistic for
reasons well known to etoy: sometimes only art can risk to venture into
new and highly risky domains given seemingly insurmountable social,
economic, technological, and cultural obstacles. By acquiring a
functioning communication device to be used with the first satellite, etoy
invests in OSSI as part of the etoy.ART-COLLECTION, and Hojun invests in
etoy, becoming part of our global community of shareholders, advisors,
friends - sharing risk, cultural twists, and artistic adventure.
