  1. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Installation

    Inspired by Robert Irwin’s Miracle Mile, this multimedia installation simulates the download progress bar of a BitTorrent client, where digital files in decentralized peer-to-peer networks are exchanged in fragments stemming from multiple participants known as “peers.”

    The intent is to raise a discussion regarding the sharing of and access to digital media and resources in this new age of information. Passersby can engage in the process of downloading a torrent file as a “peer” in order to generate a printed copy of The dotCommunist Manifesto (Eben Moglen, Columbia University). The installation senses and gradually lights up with the movement of all participants. When all lights are at max brightness, a signal is released to initiate the printing process.

    Tools: Arduino Mega, WS2812B LEDs, wireless printer, Kinect, projector, Processing, TSPS

    Scurvy is a typeface bespoke to this installation, reconstructing the traditional characteristics and gestures of blackletter script within a low-fidelity digital parameter, inspired by the mathematical logic of curves.

    Cos-Rx Packaging Family

    This is a proposal for Cos-Rx, a global Korean skincare brand merging dermatology and cosmetics focusing on natural, high-quality products at an affordable price.

    Targeted towards conscientious teens and young adults, the new Cos-Rx adopts a more sustainable design using recycled paper pulp and highlights unique ingredients such as snail mucin and galactomyces fungus.

    Inspired by the organization of medical forms, the visual language showcases linework and typography in order to create a functional, modular graphic system to package different types of skincare products.
