The Precariat Self-Help Assembly Site II


The Assembly Site made a second appearance, this time at London Design Festival 2019, with fresh new chapters from Issue 2. Funded by London College of Communications as part of Emergence: Service/Social/Sustainable Design, visitors and students were able to to put together their own handbook to defend themselves from precarious work.

The Precariat Self-Help Assembly Site


Using the format of a degree show as a starting point, where both time and attention is limited and precariats are rampant, 200 copies of The Precariat Self Help Handbook were printed (mostly self-funded by working at a cafe along with some kind donation of paper by staffs and students at London College of Communications) and distributed via an assembly line. Short descriptions were used to help visitors understand the content of each chapter to faciliate the building of their own handbook.

Let the Good Times Roll


Invited by OuterEdit to create an engaging installation for the Street of Clans Festival as part of Singapore Design Week 2019, I organised a group of 5 multi-disciplinary designers under the collaborative model, TO THE POWER OF. 
 
As the festival was interested in bridging the gap between age-old clan values with the new generation through design, we drew from the various strength of our team member, combining sound design, set design and DIY Technology to create an interactive installation. Tasked to translate the clan value of Unity, crucial to the story of the Koh Clan, a surname clan in Singapore formed by early chinese immigrants, we used the characteristics of a Rube Goldberg machine and a life-sized Marble Run to build a kinetic - auditory installation that is activated only with the participation of more than one person.

It invites visitors to work participate by using balls to complete tiny quests that activate audio and kinetic elements. To see the installation in its full glory, visitors have to work together to activate its various elements. Teamwork is the name of the game here — only when all three balls are in place will the record player start the track and let good times roll.
