Sonifyd is sonification research exploring the relationship between visual and sound in order to create a functioning tool for communication, multimedia, audiovisual, visual art and music.
Woohun Joo is a graphic designer and audiovisual artist who creates sound from abstract visual art and non-musical data. His projects mainly focus on how minimalistic visual art can be transferred to auditory domains and how the sound making processes can be conversely visualized. His work approaches for image-sound association studies and applies them for artistic audiovisual expression to explore the potential of visual and sound design as an integrated art form for multi-sensory user experience and communication design.

Joo majored in graphic design at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, Korea. He worked professionally as a graphic designer in web, printing, UI/GUI, identity, and typeface design between 2002 and 2010. He holds his Master’s degree in Digital+Media at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and an interdisciplinary PhD in sound and multimedia technology with affiliation to the Human-Centered Design program and the Center for Human-Computer Interaction (CHCI) at Virginia Tech.
