Kababayan was designed as a book collating the stories of victims of the Philippine drug war, accompanied by a website and a campaign I built for the upcoming elections. The 20-page minibook was a concept work tracing the lives and death of the Duterte administration.
.systems—Prompted to create a work of sound art that relates to space, I was interested in touching on security and what we give up in an increasingly digitized world. I built a website that is an endless feed of hundreds of exposed CCTV and camera streams from around the world, provided geographical data mapping to a randomly-generated library of sounds. The user is given buttons to interact with the "feed", ranging from reading into their microphone and braodcasting it to all other watchers. While tapping into vulnerable feeds, the viewer is—too. When you watch the world, it watches you back.
Round—Is a multiplayer reflective experience on the web. The user (you) is prompted to think about spaces in the world, and recall memories. In every place, you can find the memories others have left as well.
Every stroke on the page is shared, remembered, and experienced altogether.
