I am Hezhen, a designer who comes from south of China, majoring in Display Design in Tsinghua University. I have been fascinated with painting and craft, as well as enthusiastic with art and curious about science since I was young. The reason why I chose Display Design is that it is the combination of art and technology. However, compared with the unilateral ways learnt in my courses, I've found that the interactive means can be more impressive. My hometown is economically backward. During my campus life in Beijing, I have deeply realized the importance of new media to the development of economy. So, I choose to study at interaction Design.

GOAL OF GAME

A EDUCATIONAL DISPLAY

After the course, in order to deliver the display to more children, I shifted the display space into a mobile game. By this way, children might learn to behave themselves.

In the course, our team created a space to educate children. Through the display they will make choices in an adventurous story and learn something from it.

how to build your own home with limited budget at downtown of metropolis?

Finding proper accomodation has been a common concern for university graduates in China, especially in metropolis like Beijing and Shanghai, which is obsessed by budget, commuting time and demand for furniture or facilities. U-loft concept: under the idea of parasitism, I develop a growing community parasitizing on an office building where the residents can freely select and combine them home modules through an app.

5/CONCEPT mistletoes parasitize on trees Phor adendron is a genus of mistletoes. They are woody hemiparasitic shrubs with branches 10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;80 cm long, which grow on other trees. The foliage is dichotomously branching, with opposite pairs of leaves. Although it is able to photosynthesize, the plant relies on its host for some nutrients. The name Phoradendron is derived from the Greek for "tree thief".

VIRTUAL MUSUEM OPTIMIZATION

Visit museum at home and put items on that is displaying in museum Date: 2017 Dec 2weeks Web design: Indipendent

Virtual museum means people can visit museum online, and experience exhibition space by 3D technology.

In China, an increasing number of virtual museums provide more people with oppotunities to get to know different histories and culture. But, there are some problems in virtual webs.

I want to provide visitors with more convenient methods by adjusting web interface. Besides, I want to add some interaction games between items and visitors. I believe it may be interesting and atract more people to use virtual museum webs.

Nowadays, most of people lead a busy and tiring career. They have no time to relax and enjoy life. On the one hand, I want to create a space which is dark and contains goods that we meet in dailylife. It might lead people to focus on small details in life. On the other hand I try to explore the relationship between sense and imagination of people, to find out the secrets behind the sense of human body under the environment without vision.

INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION A LEGO device&a lighting stage

Date: 2015 Spring, 4weeks Manual model design: Independent Team: Qiujv Xu, Ziyi Cui, Yuye Lin, Zhenhe Wei Course: Functional Principle Advisor: Lingtao Tang, Xiping Shi

Through making interactive devices, I have experienced many unknown things, seeking for possibility by trying different materials and movment methods. I realise that design is not only thinking and drawing, but also making by hands. I have made many moveable models and samples in my undergraduate stage. I really enjoy the process, because it makes me feel exited when I test my work outcomes. Also it brings me sense of achievement when I see other people show a happy face from my devices.
