ASCII Art Archive

SVA MFAD, ‘Type for Masters’

Book, Website, Poster, Postcard, 2022

The ASCII Art Archive project reimagines the 100 most searched questions on Google in 2022 as ASCII art graphics. Through this exploration, the project delves into the meaning and significance of ASCII art, which plays a direct role in visualizing the symbolic questions that shape our digital society.
Just as each individual’s presence is diluted in the vastness of the digital landscape, these 100 questions are invisible but omnipresent. The project highlights the role of ASCII art in making the intangible tangible and visualizing these questions in a way that invites us to engage with them.
The project's deliverables include a book, website, poster, and postcard, each of which showcases the ASCII art graphics in a unique and engaging way. Through these different formats, the project invites viewers to consider the ways in which technology shapes our understanding of the world and our interactions with it.

TC Library Chocolate Project

SVA MFAD, ‘Can Design Touch Someone’s Heart?’

Packaging, Video, 2022

The TC Library Chocolate Project is a design exploration of the power of design to touch someone’s heart. The project targets students at Columbia University’s TC library, offering chocolate packages that aim to soothe their weary minds and bodies. Each package is accompanied by a random card featuring a witty quote, adding a touch of humor and levity to the experience.

Through this project, I asked whether design can go beyond its functional role and create a meaningful emotional connection with its audience. The project’s deliverables include packaging and a video that showcase the creative potential of design to delight and inspire. Ultimately, this Project is a celebration of the ways in which design can bring joy and comfort to people’s lives.
