A Characterized figure that looks like a common running icon on the exit and entrance signs in cities are drawn using thin EL (Electroluminescent) sheets.  This electronic drawing is installed where two sides of walls and a celling meet.  Depending on the location of the visitor, it will look distorted or right.  When it is dark, the running girl icon is reflected all around, running toward all directions.

A MOMEMENT 순간 150 x 155 x 250 cm, white birch wood, mdf, motors, micro-controller, electronics

How long does a moment appear to you?  ‘A Moment’ is a kinetic display using a POV(Persistence of Vision) display and it swings like a pendulum while displaying an ephemeral message.

‘HearWear’ and ‘Stir It On!’ are featured in this article.  It is an interesting article in general.

….Remember the childhood excitement of light-up shoes that flashed on impact? New York-based designers Younghui Kim and Milena Berry expand the concept for the 21st century with HearWear, a line of “wearable electronic” wrap skirts. Inspired by the fast-paced urban rhythms of Manhattan and Seoul, HearWear promotes the idea that consumers should be more in touch with and expressive through their environments. The skirts fuse audio and visual stimulation, responding to noise with LED panels imbedded in the fabric. Battery-powered sensors hidden in the waistbands activate the panels and electroluminescent wires embroidered into the garments’ design. The louder the noise, the more intense the impromptu light show. “We work not only towards a better environmental awareness for most people, but also towards the unnoticeable integration of technology in your day-to-day fashion and lifestyle,” says Kim of her creations. She is also debuting a sister line of skirts dubbed Stir it On! which respond to physical stimulation such as being jostled on a crowded street or dance floor. The built-in sensors could be applied to almost any wearable piece, including handbags, accessories, and jackets.
