Hey, you've found me!

I'm Lucy, a design student at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard; and you are probably here because it's application season.

However, with my last semester of graduate school in play, as well as numerous personal projects and my thesis [ role of empathy in multi-platform human machine interaction ] going on, my documentation is all over the place. If I have applied to a position at your company / studio, please check out the following relevant projects.

SCINTELLA

Scintilla (noun. a tiny trace or spark of a specified quality or feeling) is
an ambient window installation focusing on momentary perception. We experience many things in a split second through our various sensory inputs, yet very little is encoded into our memory. The ambient installation focuses on temporarily capturing those moments, and prompts the user to reevaluate their perception of the small matters through turning ephemeral reactions into longevity results.

DOUBLE BUBBLE

The DoubleBubble bottle tackles the concerns for people not drinking enough water by pairing water bottles and sharing drinking information. When one person is drinking or filling his/her water bottle, both bases react to it by creating a vortex,, a gurgling / pouring  sound, and thus creating  an audio-visual “drinking” effect. In this fun and thoughtful way, each person is reminded to drink the water he or she needs.

A little about me.

I'm a artist / designer / programmer / engineer / researcher / photographer / human. For the past 23 years, I have never stopped looking for new ways to learn and fulfill my constantly growing passion for designing for humanities.

I have never been able to explain my journey clearly in any circumstance, but I have made a timeline, and hopefully it helps :) If you are interested in more about my professional skills experiences, please visit my LinkedIn or my resume. 

Social Media

When I'm not busy with school, studio, or job applications, I like wonder around and fill my social media with niche photos taken with my 85mm.
