  2. MLF were commissioned to design and create the opening show for the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase in Cannes Lions Festival. After collaborating with Saatchi & Saatchi senior creatives Jonathan Santana and Xander Smith on the show theme “Meet your Creator”, we set off to design a show celebrating the miracle of creation.
    Our aim was to create ethereal moving sculptures of light and sound. Always excited by the prospect of appropriating new technologies and further developing them for artistic purposes, we designed and built a fleet of quadrotors with LEDs and motorised mirrors, tightly synchronised to an audio track specifically composed for the performance by oneohtrix point never.
    We designed and implemented a system which allowed us to easily choreograph and animate the quadrotors virtually, and have this data directly drive the physical robots, while the spotlights automatically tracked them in realtime. By minimizing the turnaround time from thinking of an idea, to seeing it in the flesh, we were able to realize the creative potential of this brand new medium to it’s full potential in the limited time we had.

  3. - The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde bicycle path is made of thousands glowing stones inspired by 'Starry Night'. It charges at daytime and gives light at night. The path combines innovation with cultural heritage between Nuenen en Eindhoven NL, the area where Van Gogh lived in 1883.

    This is the second Smart Highway Project which are interactive and sustainable roads of tomorrow by designer Daan Roosegaarde and Heijmans Infrastructure. The goal is to make smart roads by using light, energy and road signs that interact with the traffic situation.

  4. Prix Ars Electronica 2014, nominated.
    VIDA Awards 16.0, nominated.

    This project is based on my personal experience of being discriminated, because of being gay. The class leading Korea currently, was forced to sacrifice for economic growth after the war. They were weak and exhausted from fighting off starvation. They didn’t have the luxury to fix all the errors. They still can’t understand and rejects ones individualities, and that tendency is being carried on to the next generation. But we can’t blame the victims of history. Shocking enlightenments can be a start of change. But shock is bound to be accustomed. Shock is something that slowly wears out. Even if not, people can stop paying attention to the "shock treatment”. Everyone has their own way to protect themselves from things that irritates them. Maybe the mix of art and technology can be a softer alternative instead of the “shock treatment”.

    Every thoughts and actions that leaves our body, becomes some sort of force or energy and has influence over the world nonstop. "You hit the brakes for a second, just tap them on the freeway, you can literally track the ripple effect of that action across a two-hundred-mile stretch of road, because traffic has a memory. It’s amazing. It’s like a living organism.” (Mission Impossible III, Tom Cruise) Like this, it is hard to comprehend how powerful our actions can be. We need to realise that an action has the power to be delivered and have psychological impacts, as well as physical impacts. This is the message I wanted to deliver to the audience through this project using one of the most familiar force, gravity.

    The direction of gravitational pull changes according to the hand movement of the audience. The signal that is sent from Kinect according to the hand movement, is received by the servo motor and link arm, which translates the signal to mechanical movements to control the angle of the tank and camera in real time. By syncing the position of the hand and the gravitational force, the audience will reminisce of the Jedi’s from Star Wars. But that experience is not direct or shocking, but completely emotional. Most of the people might just end with being slightly amused, but some might end up thinking deeply about "the force”. This is what I ultimately try to address with my work. I believe change can start with a simple experience like this.

    Strange Freedom proudly presents you: BIRTHLIGHT - This short film is based on thousands of microscopic photographies from which these stunning timelapse scenarios emerge. The self-made chemical processes perform an endless dance of growing and dissolving, flooding and evaporating, melting and recrystalizing, creating an all together perfectly synced synthesis of sound and picture.
