iF concept design award 2013

iF concept design award 2013

Can you tell how fast you are moving? This project creates a connection between the user's moving speed in each frame and its visualization. We are not usually aware of the speed at which we walk or run in various places, so this product plays a role in connecting actual locations and the data sets collected. These images provide more context than using just a speed graph and a map.

Working in the realms of art, design and technology, Shim explores the relational patterns in design and computation. He is a designer / researcher / speculator. The core of his practice and interest in art and design is using data as a primary medium and combining it with integrated processes such as visualization, fabrication and installation to create a complete narrative system.
