I had an interview with Tong Wu, who has been lived in Bedford nearby for over one year. She just moved to Bedstuy because there is no alternative option to move to Manhattan and her neighborhood also is moving to other parts of Brooklyn. Although there are several options to access to Manhattan, those are not a cost-effective way, spending time more. They are willing to move further from Manhattan to take other trains instead of L train.
I was inspired by a famous movie, called HER, especially in a conversation between the human and AI. and I’ve been wondering about the appearance, emotion, and reaction of ALEXA. Consequently, I intended to augment those elements to the Alexa Machine by using projection mapping.
I recorded my friend on the black ground as Alexa, and added voice computer-generated, and then I made a sync together with voice.
Last week, I visited Cuba with my friend for a summer vacation. On the beach, I got an injury on my left knee, so I was able to get back to the ground like a Zombie.
That day, the weather was awesome and I was too much excited. I was running into the sea really fast and jumped many times with waves, but there was uneven ground on the beach.
Consequently, I finally got a bone fracture on my left knee. I asked my friend to help me, but he quite laughed a lot because he thought it didn’t seem like a dangerous situation. In the end, I was able to walk to the ground like this zombie from the sea.
Currently, I have to use crutches because of my injury when I move to other places. This is because I usually can’t use public transportation since there are not enough facilities for people with disabilities including even an elevator in a subway station.
I was born and raised in Seoul, S.Korea. I believe the recently developed countries have abundant facilities and signs for people with disabilities in public transportation. Especially, the elevator in a station is essential equipment because it could be really helpful for senior citizens and people who have big pieces of luggage and get some injuries.
Trip: Tisch to Ktown(50West 34th NY) by Uber Pool
The only way that I can move to home or school is to take Uber Pool. To share with other people, my destination is always changed automatically based on other’s destinations. Consequently, I usually need to walk at least 10 from the initial destination.
Trip: Tisch to Williamsburg by L Train
As for Davon my friend, he is living in Williamsburg nearby Bedford station. He usually takes L train to get his home. To take the train, he had to move to Union Square by walk for 10min and it takes normally 15min to Bedford Av. The only way to get home is to take L train, but it is frequently delayed on a daily basis, so it’s not easy to expect the estimated time of arrival. He said that not enough way of public transportation is a quite big problem for him, spending much money on alternative Taxi system.
I intended to create my logo by using the letter V. Vincent is my name in English, it means Victory. So I usually use the letter as a representation of me. I designed V logo by using illustrator and overlapped abstract animation which can express my passion from my heart with mask function.
