A playground and bubble machine in one, Clockwork stories are structures which breathe out bubbles when roused. Interact with it through different contraptions and watch the bubbles come out. The bubble come in different way as different audience approach. The Frantic Fingers react as the hands are pulled lifting up fingers like pole creating giant bubble and bubble foam reflecting the spectrum of color light on it. Using old playground structure creating new bubble playground. The Frantic Fingers are accomplish by a partner and I, starting from the design concept of a hands playing on piano, we have a total of 77 poles and strings attach to each of it securing on to the structure. Wrapping poles with strings to soak the bubble solution. This project allow me to learn more on different strings and how people react to foreign structure.

Scooping window started from a Youtuber vlog using their route translating it to the route into Singapore going with the same route locally and create a device in the area the route was in. The device, scooping window consist two part of element. Window and cracks. Windows create by having windows after window bring image view farer from where it was. Crack create by a thin gap in-between lines, giving clearer view as lesser light able to pass to the eye give it more forces. A new story is to be inspire from scooping window called the fairytales. Writing this story at the same time creating story boards telling the story and the world. The stories summaries a explorer going truth a tunnel leading it to another world that trees are living structure that give living space as it grows with the world.
Scooping Window December 2015 - February 2016

The Hindhede Quarry, Granite mining in the quarry took place in the 1900s and ended only in the 1980s. From the lookout point at the far end of the trail, visitors can admire the now flooded quarry with its open escarpment. Kids will have fun looking out into the water for terrapins and fish, with the occasional brightly-colored bird flying by over the water. The hut of the quarry is design for people to live in the quarry that uses no form or electricity. Recourse are harvest at the quarry because the resource are everywhere in the quarry. Fishing for food, cooking food using fire and clean water harvest from the air. The fog harvester is made out from mesh fabric that take in the moist in the wind and collect it by dripping water droplets on to a plate. This plates are link to tubes that connected to a water tank. The shower point is made to collect water for harvester with a bowl. In the shower a string can be pulled to open a hole on the bowl to release the water. Releasing the string will let down the rock and block the hole of the bowl.
