「mu」backpack – 2016「mu」in Latin writing represents the tone of the Chinese character「木」 – wood.
This is a self-initiated project led by the intention to build a portfolio case. As my work constantly involves working with film and sound, I wanted to create something that can showcase my physical portfolio whilst having the ability to watch some of my short films. I created a backpack out of unvarnished wood as a representation of growth. Over time, this backpack will absorb moisture and change its form depending on natural temperature. I used wood as a main material for the backpack acting as an amplifier for the sound of the films being displayed on the integrated screen.
