How people perceive and interact with ordinary products and surroundings in different ways always intrigue me and I believe that with thoughtful considerations, aesthetics and some fun ideas, products can bring comfort and delight to their owners.

Final Year Project(s)
This project was a journey of learning and exploring ways of remembering the lost loved one in the modern context.
Miro is a dedicated personal memorial for the bereaved. Much like old photographs, memories fade over time and the blurry and fuzzy images become clear and vivid when people revisit them. Miro allows people to select and store precious memories in the format of digital images and videos of their loved one. It highlights the undistracted experience of remembering and recalling through physical interactions.
When inactivated, Miro functions like an ordinary mirror as part of people’s daily life. A mirror required regular cleaning for the reflection to be clear and it is metaphorically similar to the act of refreshing memories. It also enhances the experiences when people see themselves at the same time and reflect on their feelings when they view the memories.
