Things That Confuse Us is a microsite and visual diary exploring Korean-American identity. The site features images and reflection writings from past experiences, structured as answers to questions we have heard growing up that push us closer to or farther away from our cultural identity. With overlapping and haphazard popups the site immerses the user in a state of confusion to illustrate our ongoing journey with our identity and being okay with existing in an in-between space.
The Passion Project is a collaboration by three curious design students looking to discover what it means to “pursue your passions.”
We made our way across the country and back in 53 days to interview 20 designers and other creatives about what their passions look like today, how they got there, and where their passions will take them.
With the help of our Honda Accord, cameras, coffee and podcasts we created a video series to document these inspiring stories and our journey across the country.
A publication exploring the friction and the transformation of meaning that occurs between translations of different languages. This 100 page, french folded, and Japanese bound publication explores the Korean and English language, through the Korean poem, “Horizon” written by Kim Hyesoon. It features five different translators who each offer a different English translation. Each of these chapters opens with a visual or typographic illustration of a single stanza, to illustrate visually, conceptually, or typographically, the loss of information, language, or culture through the process of translation.
Between The Lines is a concept for a 28-day educational exhibit on the Seattle Public Library's fourth floor. This installation is intended to reeducate all people on periods and elevate the voices of people whose stories haven fallen between the lines in order to present the social inequity in the way periods are currently treated in an accessible and relatable way. The information is presented through five personal testimonies sharing their experiences with the issues of period education and taboos, periods in prison, periods and gender, periods and poverty, and period changes.
