Reimagining Wikipedia

A redesign of Wikipedia, Wikipedia Workspace is intended as a flexible working space for Wikipedia users. Designed with draggable and resizable content sections, they can be toggled to hide or show. Activated external links within the page would create more section boxes within the workspace for easy reading and access. Users also have the options to toggle between serif or sans serif typefaces.

Information Heavens

Exploring a speculative future where predictive technology dictates everyday life, a quantifying system was created to scan citizens. 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 and biometric gathered, the system will print out a receipt with the user’s prognosis to determine if one was a latent criminal or upright citizen. Presented as an interactive exhibition piece.

The Age of Archival Clutter

Archives today have begun to lose their purpose and value as the borders between garbage and non-garbage space is blurred. This exhibition and performance piece questions the relevance of archives in the age of abundance. The exhibition is set up as an archive storage facility and makes use of concrete as the medium to store archives. This visualizes the increasing lost of context that lead to archives becoming clutter, and ultimately garbage. Included in the exhibition is a catalogue that details how archives are stored and retrieved in this alternate universe.

Hidden 2.0

A self-censoring web extension that serves to safeguard users from NSA's absurd list of tracked words. It removes any trace of these words in real time, on websites and in web searches. A sarcastic response to the NSA's surveillance and tracking programme that assumes almost every user as a 'potential terrorist', the web extension is an extreme form of self-censorship. Presented in a microsite.

Brutalist Architecture

publication on Trellick Tower, exploring the differing views toward Brutalist Architecture. It is packaged in a slipcase with charcoal rubbings of concrete textures. The charcoal is imprinted onto the book by the readers, suggesting that existing biases affects the content itself. The publication itself can be physically split two parts, the positive and the negative viewpoints. The book structure mimics some of Trellick Tower's iconic architecture.

Digital
Digtial Degradation

An experiment into digital decay and expiration, this web extension degrades news according to the age of the article. As the Internet today allows for data to be created without hesitation and regard for digital clutter, this extension aims to intervene on how much users take the availability of the digital resources for granted. With the extension, news articles degrade with each day, making it harder to access information the longer its been on the site.
