Seoul PSA – Child Abuse


The Problem: Child Abuse and people feeling they can’t interfere.

The Solution: A PSA was created using screen and shadows.  On the white screen is a print of the shadows of a person abusing a child.  As the user steps up, a light shines on to them showing their shadow intervening between the two.  At the same time, a superman logo appears with the number 112 and the message “Report (call) to become a hero for children.”


Volkswagen – The Human Crossing

The Problem: Encourage drivers to stop at crosswalks/zebra lanes and decrease accidents related.

The Solution: The Human Crossing is a projected created by Volkswagen that uses RFID chips in pins that are given to children in the neighborhood that are then connected to billboards that display the child’s name as they cross the street.

The Problem:   Preventing stress that comes with waiting and preventing crossing when the light is red.

The Solution: ActiWalk is a game and interface created by Urban Invention. While the pedestrians are waiting on the sidewalk, they can play pong with their counterpart across the street.  At the same time, the color begins to drain out of the screen to indicate the amount of time left before the light changes.
