Rolling Stone magazine has been published since 1967 by Jann Wenner. 1967 was the year when The Summer of Love had began. It was a social movement that occurred during the summer of 1967 where young people went out on the streets wearing hippie fashion and claimed peace and love. Rolling Stone magazine was strongly influenced by The Summer of Love and it represented young people’s spirit.
However, when I first saw the recent version of the magazines, it was like an old magazine that elder people read in retrospect to their glorious rock and roll era. Those young people who used to rebel against the government grew old and so the magazine got old with them. So my goal for this project was to let the younger people read it again and revive that badass spirit!

Dan Flavin was an American minimalist artist famous for installations from commercially available fluorescent light fixtures and the interaction between light and space(architecture). People tried to find meaning from his work, but he drew the line by saying "It is what it is and it ain’t nothing else". Thus, I choose Helvetica as a main typeface and reinterpreted his work(between light and space) to the tongue.
Project: Design something interactive using cardboard and a device.
I used to use smartphone flashlight when I hang out with my friend on the loft top or outdoor, but always light has been too dry and too straight to make a mod. Although my new cardboard device Disco Odyssey is cheap and easy to make, it will efficiently bright up your party.
To be a great Kung fu master, one must do 100 pushups, running 10km every day. It is Illustration practice to be a better designer. I used the pen tool and mesh tool.
I was inspired by a prayer wheel when I traveled Ladakh, India. A prayer wheel is a religious object for Buddhists and traditionally Om Mani Padme Hum is written in Sanskrit on the outside of the wheel. Spinning a wheel will have much the same meritorious effect as orally reciting the prayers.
I coded some wishes such as "hope", "love", and "money" and made the words come out when people spin the wheels. Spinning is the moment that meaning less LED blinks change into meaning full words.
