Digital Ppal-let-ter [again]

It’s been almost 1 year since I’ve submitted my PhD project. Now I’m waiting for the graduation ceremony in this Dec. YAY!!!

I planned to start doing a new project from this year but I haven’t started it yet because there’re so many things to be done by end of May. But I will try to start doing a new project asap. Also I should keep writing blog entries as well. FOR SURE!!

MINA2016 and smart ajumma

I just came back home. MINA (Mobile Innovation Network Australasia) 2016  was an amazing experience to meet other researchers and their fabulous works. I also presented my PhD project in MINA 2016 and I feel glad people who were there know who ajummas are and why ajummas need to be considered as smart ajummas today. 15 mins weren’t enough to talk everythinf about my project in detail, but thank  MINA, I could’ve shared my beloved research project with other researchers.

New blog entries about ajummas will be coming soon.

 

 

 

 

Ajumma’s Mobile moment

I saw very good photos that were under the title of ‘Mobile moment’ from Facebook today. So I use that title for today’s blog entry. 페이스북 친구가 ‘Mobile moment’라고 제목을 붙여 올린 모바일사용자들의 모습을 담은 사진을 보고 나도 우리 아줌마들의 모바일모먼트 사진을 올려보았다. 개인의 프라이버시를 위해 얼굴은 모자이크 처리를 했다. 다양하게 모바일모먼트를 즐기는 우리의 엄마, 이웃, 친구인 대한민국의 아줌마들 모두 화이팅! 멋지고 아름답습니다!

I keep thinking about making any ‘art’ project about ajumma but I need some more time. The project should be related to my previous video, ‘Digital Ppal-let-ter’.

Ajummas are in Live Photo

Music credit: Peppertones, ‘For all dancers’ (less than 5 seconds, looping)

I just played with the keynote to create a live photo video for this blog. All the videos are made with (include Digital Ppal-let-ter project) photos and keynote. This looping live photo video reminds me a rhizome movie (by Adrian Miles) that we’ve learnt at RMIT almost 10 years ago. I’m thinking to create short video clips (like this) through using keynote, live photo and maybe photo collage.
