Mao Mao Publications website


I like this self-indulgent bit of flash on the Mao Mao Website. My quick attempt to capture it doesn't do it justice. See it here

Art in Hong Kong


In support of local art development, Sino group initiated the project "Art in Hong Kong" whereby they present art exhibitions through out selected Sino Group properties. This is the website that helps track and promote the various events.

The site may well be a couple years old but it still strikes me as a well executed effort. I'm always a sucker for adhoc illustration. But while spatial interfaces have their uses I can't help but think that this website is entirely ineffective. I thought we left the room metaphor with early cd-rm development. The website looks more like an attempt by the design team to impress themselves and their peers versus actually as a resource to promote the project itself.

Artivists and Mobile Phones: The Transborder Immigrant Project

Ricardo Dominguez calls himself an "artivist." Half political activism and half art, Ricardo's projects blur the boundaries between the aesthetic and the political. "We always view our activism within the frame of art and the poetic," said Ricardo. Ricardo was part of a team that was recently awarded the Transnational Communities Award for a Transborder Immigrant Tool that uses GPS-enabled mobile phones to help immigrants crossing the border between Mexico and the United States.

CuteCircuit's Hug Shirt


Written about in numerous webblogs and nominated by Time as one of the Best Inventions of 2006, CuteCircuit's Hug Shirt is embedded with sensors and electronics that allow you to feel a sense of touch, skin warmth and heart rate of the sender - a simulation of physical closeness - bringing the sensation of a hug from a distant loved one.

The Hug Shirt is a Bluetooth accessory for Java enabled mobile phones. Hug shirts don’t have any assigned phone number, all the data goes from the sensors Bluetooth to your mobile phone and your mobile phone delivers the hug data to your friend’s phone and it is seamlessly transmitted Bluetooth to his or her shirt!

Sending hugs is as easy as sending an SMS and you will be able to send hugs while you are on the move, in the same way and to the same places you are able to make phone calls (Rome to Tokyo, New York to Paris).
