I re-imagined Recito, (a project i worked in Crafting interaction class, last year) as a crowd-sourced system installed in NYC subway station where the content-consumed by the riders feeds into the Recito system. This system monitors and recommends popular content to the riders at the station kiosks. People can get the content (as audio logs/ offline reads) on their phones using ‘touch and scan’ technology.

‘Zero Food Waste 101’ was an experimental graphic assignment I did from The Advanced Fundamentals of Graphic class. The goal was to raise awareness about food waste and inspire others while trying not to waste food for myself. I saved 7 days of food waste and take a photo of each day’s. I created icons of elements that are related to each food such as water, time, tools, ingredients, etc. Putting this project to MTA subway stations is a great opportunity since it’s where people can see more campaign ads. The trick is make it look like a gourmet restaurant ad. When people come to make a reservation, they will see what’s the ad is really about. You can see the work here.
Make the city yours is an idea I heard of while visiting Smiling Hogshead Ranch over the summer. The Ranch started off as a guerrilla garden, a form of direct action to reclaim the commons. This made me think about the ways in which design can alter public spaces in the modern city. Specifically, what ways can design be used to intervene and transform mundane spaces into something more dynamic and more human for its inhabitants? Here’s my quick attempt at addressing this situation.
