ok center pop up store @ shenzhen nantou old town

©ok center 2022
key visual


the visual design for ok center pop-up in shenzhen is related to the location itself, a building from the so-called ‘urban village’ area (‘urban village’ is a phenomenon resulting from the urbanisation in the GBA area). 

people used to build their own shelters in these ‘urban village’ areas. and the building ok center is staying has been transferred at least 5 times, each time the new resident owner expanded the building with add-ons part based on the existing shape. eventually, what we see now is an architecture been built, converted and reshaped by its various past residents.







the preservation and regeneration for commercialising this building are done by ©URBANUS都市实践.

type~face is my graduating project, also a project from the early covid-19 period done in London (spring-summer 2020).

type~face(字面意思) is an experimental project exploring the customising visual for texting. this project started in early 2020, at the time covid-19 brought the ‘first round’ of lockdown in London. as far as I know, many international students living alone thousands of miles away from their home — we had never relied on the mobile phone so much.

though what makes the communication more real? is it video chat of our familiar persons in 2D, or the never offline chatting messages? we used to talk to people face to face with our moods, gestures, facial expressions, we can even ‘talk’ through these without language. so when it comes to such a situation that we cannot see each other in life, this project is testing out how we can maximise the use of technologies in order to reach the human needs.

type~face is proposed for the purpose of presenting the vibe we are holding while saying such a word or sentence to the receiver, the ideal picture of it is to combine the clear, visible information (the message) and the invisible information (the vibes/moods) by designing the relevant visuals for the words we are talking.

an information & system platform project started with collecting the timer in our environment, it then questions whether the time is running forward as we (the human) assume it is, and proposes a clock that runs backward, meanwhile counting times forward.

lights & shadows & emotions

csm/london

photography/publiaction/installation/collage/interactive

2018

an experience & environment platform project during my time in csm

inspired by the sunlight reflections on buildings I saw during the flâneur activity, they caught me for quite a while in the street, and made me feel really released and disconnected with the rushing reality (while still standing on it).

I tried to reflect the emotions humans have in such vehicles later in the development of this project. I attempted to represent the emotions by recreating the light reflections with colour, at this point, the ‘lights on the paper’ became something half-natural and half-artificial, just as the way (we might be taught to) cope with negative emotion - you fight back, deny it and state you are fine even from it. but if you let it be and try to accept it, better scenes are ahead.
