Kairos –Wind Sculpture investigates the tele-presence of nature through data representation. Viewers can watch the speed of the wind far from the current location, based on how you set up the location of the wind data feed. The length and frequency of gazing at this object started to build peripheral pattern recognition for the users. The geometric modules turn fast or slowly, according to the real-time wind speed data feed from a selected city.

Skin explores non-screen based methods for the notification of outdoor air pollutant levels. It monitors in real time the levels of outdoor air pollutant particulate matter and notifies the user of a warning level by its surface movement. Without searching and interpreting the map on the Internet, adults and children can immediately be made aware of the current air quality status by reading the surface display.
