The legendary Architect Zaha Hadid passed away years ago.
However, her artistic vision and ethos are still inspiring our generations to come.
"fludity ; a new architectural language"
highlights her widely recognized accomplishments and design philosophy
she created over her 40-year career.
Each element runs, flows, slides, and congregate in a manner that reflects Hadid’s design practice. A different weight scales of lines and a fluid stream of curves emphasizes its distinct aesthetics and organic shapes. Color, font and, illustrations were carefully put together in relation to the art piece.

This is an interactive project designed in collaboration with Arduino.
Arduino is an open-source platform for building interactive objects that can sense and control objects in the physical and digital world.
The architectural illustration on the poster is printed with a special lamination that operates with the Arduino board attached in the back.
The device, equipped with ultrasonic sensors, can detect footsteps of the pedestrian and the changing light.
If something is detected, the device will vibrate and accordingly, the stream of lines on the image will run and flow.
“A pit pops up in my book Zip and begins its own journey through the pages.”
The title Jamsel.zip is a combination of two words. Jamsil is a name of a city in Seoul, South Korea, where I grew up, and Zip refers to a type of archive file format that is used to compress data. I used visual images from various online sources and composed these "found images” into multiple, strip-like sequences, formatting a narrative. In this manner, the book serves as an archive that compresses the story of life in Seoul as well as being a critique of urban development.
The presentation of my work builds upon an iconic interaction with the viewers, allowing them to experience the contents by touching and looking at its physical form and encourages the viewer to further transform the object through direct engagement.
The applied concept of my book is to study a trajectory of a sinkhole that opens onto a island landfill. Punching holes into the book makes the image blurry, abstract and destructive while simultaneously making a collection of new images from the cut pieces.
By subverting the traditional gallery experience where artwork is appreciated only by looking at the art piece, my work asks viewers not only to get into close contact with the work, but to interact and communicate with it.
