AIGA Philadelphia's SPACEHide Description
AIGA Philadelphia's SPACE
In the SPACE at Old City, Philadelphia owned by AIGA Philadelphia, a simple setup consisting of a webcam, computer and a LCD TV acts as a interactive motion piece. In a collection of more than 100 logos created exclusively for the space, the piece detects motion within the room and randomly displays on the screen one of the 100+ logos in its repository. The cycling of the logos depend on the movements that the camera is detecting.. more movement, more cycles.

Conceptual Process PosterHide Description
Conceptual Process Poster
"Let's Do" is a self-initiated cognitive mapping poster self-initiated to "visualize" my conceptual processes as well as physical activities during client work. This poster is a cognitive mapping that I did based on sketches of a lot of previous client & self-initiated projects. The result is very interesting... I tried to make it detailed; It's a 13x19 poster. This rather a more direct product than conceptual because... the content IS a conceptual + process mapping in client projects.

Experimental Korean TypefaceHide Description
Experimental Korean Typeface
This is an self-initiated experiment playing with the Korean Alphabet "Hangul" I tried to create a illustrative and silhouette stylized interpretation. The consonants are usually even and clean, while the vowels are very chaotic and sporadic. In the traditional written / typed Korean Hangul, it is rather the opposite. The visuals on the consonants are more chaotic than the vowels.
