A creative mobile app developed for forecasting sea of clouds in Taiwan's mountains.
To show the function of forecasting stratus in Taiwan's mountains, I made the menu list icons featuring scenic photography of the mountains and designed clear line charts which illustrate the changes of stratus rate during 72 hours on the home page.
It gets inspired from early science fictions to ethical issues of contemporary artificial intelligence development.
A clear logo made of recognizable symbols and typography is my favorite design style.
Chinese calligraphy is not always serious. I duplicated the elegant flow of the strokes from Chinese calligraphy by using Adobe Photoshop and Wacom Pen Tablets and wrote some humorous quotes for my friends.
Most of my works featuring memorable outline sketches look random and unrestrained but actually, they all follow a rule - experimental fusion. For example, you can see the fantastic creatures made of various species, a mixture of human heart and weapons, and clear logos made of recognizable symbols in my works. My main aim in art is to create mixed images which amaze people but enable them to easily understand the behind issues such as environmental problems, reservation of cultural events, etc.

I hate something lovely, always feel so-called cuteness, KawaiI is mostly hypocritical and artificial. However, those ugly genetic variations are natural and more fascinating, even if they seem unreasonable. My spacecraft is made of flesh, blood vessels and nerves, it lives in harmony with its passengers. Everything is organic. uglykiki

I started shooting nude art when 21. Inspired by my crazy but charming friends, I only take pictures of amateur models and believe that naked is a beautiful nature which teaches us to love our bodies.

Kiki Wu is a Taiwanese artist. Based on my background of communication and user experience design, I am interested in stimulating viewers' emotion through digital media and mainly focus on the projects of interactive art, net art and augmented reality which emphasize users' involvement. The issues I addresses include the national identity crisis, personal identity narratives, and internet surveillance. I am currently pursuing MFA in Digital Media Art at SJSU.
