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 . 

Blue tooth network, IR distance sensor, Arduino and R

The artists has earned BFA and MFA from Digital Media Design dept of Hongik University, Jochiwon Campus, College of Design and Media.

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.

<짜릿한 전기파티: Zestful Electric Party> WCU Digital Media Art Camp will be held intensively for a week, from June 28th to July 3rd, 2010 in Seoul.   This camp is for professional designers and artists who have interests in physical computing and media art but, haven’t had a chance to learn physical computing & visual programming.  There will be intro classes for Physical Computing and Processing then some open optional one day workshops for participants to choose.  This camp is organized and funded by Hongik University WCU Digital Media Public Art Research Center.

During the wcu digital media art camp, Younghui will be teaching a one day workshop, “Expressive Wearable Technology” on wed, June 30th! She will demonstrate how to make soft electronic sensors using conductive fabrics and thread and also how to use Lilypad Arduino during this workshop.  Participants will make interactive wearable sound applications or visual displays during this intensive workshop.

Below are results from two sessions of 4 hour wearable workshops by Hongik University BFA students.
