2. The Receipt of Memory
The Receipt of Memory is a device that catches memories. By drawing a memory on a foggy screen, you allow the device to read your mind. It then prints out a receipt of your memory, enabling you to retrieve memories that would otherwise be forgotten.
The design of the device is inspired by inadvertent distraction during a conversation. Even though you clearly hear the words and sentences, in the next moment the memory of what was said is gone.

3. Rain Season
Rain Season interacts with raindrops. Consisting of two digital devices and one analog device, this work puts rainy days in a new perspective. The concept behind it is to reveal the mysteries of rain.
Raindrops fall on flowers and roof tiles, and into puddles. Respectively, this reflects the movements raindrops can cause, the sounds they can create, and the appearance they can have. As raindrops drip, what do they dream of and where do they feel like going?

sWeather is a do-it-yourself weather station that can be built and configured by anyone. The base station contains humidity, air pressure, and temperature sensors. It is expandable with many other sensors, and therefore can be adapted to the user's needs. Using the sWeather website, users can access their data, compare it with other official weather services, make weather forecasts, and create a comprehensive network of weather data together with other users. The website is fully responsive, allowing users to access their personal weather data on their mobile phones while on the move.
