Ways of Seeing
Someone asked a homeless man on the street what the worst part about being homeless is, and he replied, “No one sees me.” As passers walk by ignore their existence on sidewalks, in parks, in subway stations, homeless people go unseen everyday no matter who they are and who they were before. It’s hard to imagine how someone can go from having a home one day to being out on the street the next, but it can be caused by any sort of tragedy, such as economic factors and natural disaster. However, when we pass by them we ignore all the stories behind them.
This is a campaign project to reveal unheard stories from the homeless and to raise awareness on how stereotyping can keep us from seeing the full picture.
We first started with visiting Apostles Soup Kitchen in NYC, and interviewed the homeless and heard their unexpected life's stories. Then, we transcribed their stories into patterns by hiding true facts about them by representing how stereotypes block our sights to view them as an equal human being.

Aging is a natural part of the process of life. However, our understanding of aging is often a complex and fluid thing. For example, is measuring our age strictly by our birthdays the best way to understand the changes that are taking place to us as time passes? Aging is in fact a multi-dimensional process that includes physical, psychological, and social changes. We can appear to be notably younger or older than our chronological age for example.
My aim with this project is to make a digital tool that helps people develop a more accurate and rounded understanding of their age. By highlighting the three key changes we face as we age, my goal is to help people achieve balance - to understand that the choices they make might result in aging prematurely or might be preventing them reaching maturity.
By playing a true and false game that starts with a series of 36 questions based on three life perspectives (biological, psychological, and social aging) in aging, people are made aware of the multi-dimensional process of aging and as a result can develop a more holistic picture of themselves as they travel through life.
