Gift Karma / Website

Gift Karma
Gift Karma

“Gift Karma” is a program to encourage people to do kind things by documenting on a website. Laser-cut karma tokens were tailor-made as the media for circulation. The back of each token was inscribed with a unique QR code that linked to the website once it was scanned. These tokens were distributed by the helper to the recipient after offering to help. In the past, acts of kindness were, for the most part, barely memorable and noticeable. The physical circulation of tokens not only established a dyadic relationship between the helper and the recipient but also rendered the idea of kindness more perceptible.
