    In Between The WindowIn Between The Window is a digital interactive installation and an ongoing research project, exploring urban sound and visual spectacles in downtown Brooklyn. By reconfiguring and recreating the light projected by the glass curtain wall, this installation tries to reshape with the industrialized modernist landscape and to discover those underlying, vivid, and rhythmic urban space.

    Project exhibited at 
    NYU ITP 2022 Winter Show

    CICA Museum, Seoul KR




    NYU ITP 2022 Winter Show
    In December 2022, IN BETWEEN THE WINDOW was officially presented to the public at New York University’s ITP Winter Exhibition. The location of the exhibition at NYU’s Tisch School in downtown Brooklyn was uniquely significant for the project.

    During the event, the audience was highly interested in the visual presentation and light effects of the project, and it provoked thoughts and discussions from a variety of perspectives and created a meaningful dialog in the community.



    Brand Identity: Ancient Future
    Brand designer for jewlery brand Ancient Future under creative direction from founder Qin Xu since 2022.

    Designed all kinds of graphic materials for seasonal campaign logo types, promotion lookbook, brandbook and webpages.










    KW White Suits A series of custom suits was designed for entertainers, rock stars, and other luminaries of the limelight. The suit series originated as a continuation to a gift—a suit—for the infamous Mexican ufologist Jaime Maussan, which was featured in karlssonwilker’s previous UDEM Exhibition.

    Each suit was accompanied by boots, a hat, and an intricately embroidered shirt, crafted using heat-pressed vinyl and spray paint. I hand-produced the entire series, ironing acrylic on white suits, while working under the direction from Jan Wilker and Connor Muething.

    SEI 06
    Interactive light installation at New York Hall of Science produced for/under directions from artist Chika IIjima (CHIKA).

    CHIKA wrote: 
    SEI06 is the sixth installation in the SEI series. It was conceived as an integral part of both the MI and GO projects, which were first developed in 2022 at the Paseo Project Artist in Residence program in Taos, New Mexico. This work received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and was made possible with technical support from Madmapper and Garagecube.  

    When inactive, SEI06 displays seven colors, resembling a rainbow. When activated, the lights respond to movement by gracefully shifting, resulting in a playful display of colorful shapes.
