“The leaves are starting to sway. Someone has been crossing through the forest to meet me.”

‘YEO-WOON’ is 'Lingering Imaginary' in Korean. It suggests a new communication mean, which allows those who live apart from their beloved family, friends and lovers to connect with them beyond existing smart devices. YEO-WOON collects user’s sound data such as living noise and projects them into the other user’s surroundings via the swaying movements of leaves. By watching the leaves reacting to the sound of the other user, one can continuously feel the presence of their beloved ones in their daily life.
