Introduction – Maxine JY Kim

Hi, My name is Maxine. I am 2nd year MFADT, mostly interested in soft circuits and physical computing. I am personally fascinated by aesthetic qualities of human experience blended with technology.

I studied interactive arts and technology in undergraduate in Vancouver Canada. The program was similar to DT, my concentration was design and media art.

I am a pet lover, own 2 dogs and a cat.
So, my thesis project is a wearable piece that raises awareness of cruelty to animals in service of fashion. The focus is the fur trade and the pain animals suffer due to trapping and farming practices.

Thank you,
