ABOUT

Sim is a designer, maker and coder interested in how people interact with the built environment and wearable technology.

Her work falls somewhere within the genre of built environment, wearable technology and community participations. It involves working with various communities in different cities and uses wearable technology as tools to express their relationship with the city, touching on demographic, race, gender and the subjective experience of the city through people.
