Wearables and Material Talk at Soft Lab at ITP, NYU (Nov 15th, 2012)

In the middle of my visiting fellowship at Cornell, I stop by New York City to talk at the Soft Lab in the ITP floor where I wanted to talk most among my home community!

The Soft Lab is cozy and people were busy with their ITP Sprint Show but, it turned out great and heated with their interests!

Media City Seoul 2012, Da Vinci Creative Technology Art exhibition,

Younghui’s new wearable art project, ‘Gravity of Light’  3D printed textile wearable hat is finally completed three months after her team got a Da Vinci Creative Grant funded by Seoul Foundation of Art and Culture & Art Space Guemcheon.   This exhibition was held with Media City Seoul 2012 (Seoul Media Art Biennale) from Sept 10th – October 9th, 2012

“Gravity of Light”   - Interactive Wearable using 3D printed smart textile

What if light on the surface of the wearable textile behaves like it has
gravity… It started with this simple idea of light having gravity like water.

“Gravity of Light” is a wearable technology art made of 3D printed smart textile that displays the wearer’s natural movement of head such as tilting.  With embedded custom designed electronic circuitry in a hat, light pixels move on the surface of the hat flowing toward titled direction.
