communicating with the deceased  , a message from the deceased on a special day

The shared memory between the living and the dead is stored in ashes of the deceased. It is both the most symbolic and physical remain of the person. When one asks a question, the answer of the deceased appears on the ashes (an answer they might have given if they were still allive).

Most children who face a TV remote control for the first time tend to fear using it. Since there are often two or three remote controls for every TV, and each remote control can have many buttons, it is understandable they feel this way.
But are all these buttons really necessary? Does the shapes or modality of the remote control relate to children?

This “Origami TV Remote Control” enables children to learn only the essential functions such as “Channel Selection” and “Volume Control” through a paper playing method. In this way they will feel rather joyful when using the complicated interfaces. Parents can also feel confident that their children would not be able to mess around with the settings on their TV.

This prototype is developed from electronics and software workshop.

SoniColumn is an interactive sound installation that can be played by a person’s touch. The installation takes the form of a column-like cylinder, of a height that does not quite reach the ceiling but just high enough for one’s reach. Grids of LEDs installed inside the column light themselves on by the users’ touch and emit unique sounds. When a user cranks the handle, the column slowly rotates itself and plays the light patterns of the user’s touch

MusicBox is a sound instrument that integrates an installation with interactions over the Internet. The physical installation consists of an old-fashioned music box with a crank handle, in which the pins have been replaced with LEDs and the notes with photo sensors for user interaction.
