THE PERIOD CLOUD

This is an interactive printing machine providing information on various topics within menstruation and crowdsourced stories on period from people around the world. With my background in physical computing and woodwork, my primary role was to prototype, design the electrical circuit, solder, and build the enclosure. We also had the opportunity to showcase our piece at Tate Modern on International Women's Day 2020.
FROM YOUR BIG SISTERS: A GUIDE ON PERIODS AND EVERYTHING AROUND IT

I co-authored an educational book on menstruation. My tasks were to conduct in-depth research on multifarious aspects of menstruation - a topic I initially had minimal knowledge on - and wrote the content and illustrated the anatomical diagams present in the book. This book will be launched virtually at Digifest 2021 and the website version is currently under construction.
PERIOD TRACKING BRACELET WORKSHOP

Through this project, we also received the opportunity to run a Period Tracking Bracelet workshop at MenstrUAL Festival, organised by UAL's Post-grad community.
