MFA student’s thesis project, “Conversation”

I have advised a master’s thesis project for my former TA, Kyungmi Kim for about two years and she has finally completed both her wearable project and thesis.  (also passed the thesis review at the end of December)

“Conversation” is a set of dresses that communicates with each other visually (in this case, in different color of LEDs and blinks.)  The artist tried to visualize the process of conversation and how the listener can be influenced by the talker.   If the wearers are within a certain distance from each other (friendly space,) they can influence each other by talking to each other.  The dress of the listening wearer’s color changed to the color of the talking wearer in this case.  This represents inner changes and spiritual communion achieved by their conversation and is being visualized .

Body Graffiti v. 2.0

Younghui is working on Body Graffiti version 2.0 currently along other her other series on Wearable Technology Art.  Compared to previous version, this version has double resolution (64 pixel) to draw better graphic and will have better fashion design.  The new CPB is a lot thinner and flexible and modular so it won’t make any wearable bulky and a flat rechargeable Lithium battery with a voltage regulator will be used.    The finished design will be on the blog soon but, here is the cpb version 2.0.
