A speculative quantifying machine that gathers and analyses one’s data and biometric, to algorithmically determine one’s prognosis.

The system is set in a terminal and comprises an introductory video, a conversational form, a facial scanner, and a heart rate monitor. Based on the data acquired, the system will print out a receipt with the user's prognosis.

In collaboration with Kaori Toh.

An exhibition questioning the relevance of archives in the age of abundance.

Archives begin to lose their purpose and value as the borders between garbage and non-garbage space is blurred. Information is lost in a sea of overabundance. The exhibition uses concrete to store archives to visualize the increasing lost of context that lead to archives becoming clutter, and ultimately garbage.

Includes an exhibition catalogue.

A critical inquiry into our infrastructural reality in the post-internet age. An infrastructural game of chess, with 4 layers—Earth, City, Cloud and Interface. The actors assigned to the chess pieces are determined by the layer they exist on at setup and have a direct relation to the power of the chess pieces possessed in traditional chess.

Includes an instruction manual.

A website to promote a self-censoring web extension application that can safeguard us from falling into the NSA’s radar of tracked words in our web searches and online activities.

It is a sarcastic response to the NSA's surveillance and tracking programme that assumes almost every user as a 'potential terrorist'. It is a promotion of an extreme version of digital self-censorship.

A publication on the differing views toward
Brutalist Architecture, with Trellick Tower as the main case study.

Charcoal rubbings of concrete textures on the packaging leave imprints on the book, suggesting that existing biases readers have affects the content itself. The publication itself can be split into two parts, the positive and the negative viewpoints.

An interactive visualization of music, aiming to involve the audience in the music, visuals and experience. The visualization changes in real time and responds to the audiences reactions if they sing along or tap to the beat. A further element of involvement is added when this can be fed back into the audio itself, allowing the work to become an interactive feedback piece.

Created with Processing.

A experimentation in progress, this bookmarklet is intended for BBC News. As availability of Internet resources tends to be taken for granted, we wanted to explore a form of digital decay or expiration. The bookmarklet creates more degradation depending on how old the article is, making it harder to access information the longer its been on the site.
