an evening in jail with ck calvin klein

“With an area size of merely 699 square kilometres nationwide, event venues can only get this exciting in Singapore. The National Museum of Singapore? Check. The Old Parliament House? Check. The top level of a multi-storey carpark? Check. A dilapidated jailhouse once home to convicts? Now that has got to be a first. I was pleasantly surprised when I first received the invite.

ck Calvin Klein
and the brands’ Global Creative Director, Kevin Carrigan, were to present a fashion experience in Singapore on the grounds of the Queenstown Remand Prison for its Spring 2010 collection. Seriously? Quite evidently, it was not an event I could bear to miss.

For the evening, the historic former prison was transformed into a sleek event space to preview Carrigan’s Spring 2010 ck Calvin Klein apparel and accessory offerings, which were featured on more than twenty models who were dramatically positioned on linear platforms within the cell block of the former prison. Featured on the interior and exterior walls and in the cells of the venue, were a new series of visually stunning, large-scale video installations featuring the Spring 2010 line, which were created by acclaimed Singaporean photographer and director Geoff Ang, who was also in attendance.

Attended by the discerning guests spanning the worlds of fashion, art architecture and entertainment, the event was also graced by ck Calvin Klein models, Liu Wen and Mark Cox, President & CEO, Calvin Klein, Inc., Tom Murray. Others spotted included actors Ethan Ruan (dressed in ck Calvin Klein) and Allan Wu; actress Cynthia Koh; as well as Ong Beng Seng & Christina Ong, Sharon Tan, Alicia Scanlon, Francesca Scarpa, Christine Pillsbury, Celina Lin (dressed in ck Calvin Klein), Alwyn Chong, Chan Soo Khian, Ling Foo, Michael & Chiwen Koh, Lai Yong Lawrence, Resham Melwani, Claudia Huegel, Devesh & Asha Chetty, Lelya Eichelberger, Tan Su Shan, George Tanasijevich, Kaori & Ray Zage, Shareen Khattar, Moira Coops, Olga Iserlis, Alice Ooi, Chris Wilson, Gaurav Kripalani, Jo Soh, Wykidd Song, and Ernesto Bedmar.”

Here’s the latest project from YesYesNo, this time in Auckland, NZ! It’s called Night Lights:

In this installation YesYesNo teamed up with The Church, Inside Out Productions and Electric Canvas to turn the Auckland Ferry Building into an interactive playground. Our job was to create an installation that would go beyond merely projection on buildings and allow viewers to become performers, by taking their body movements and amplifying them 5 stories tall.

We used 3 different types of interaction – body interaction on the two stages, hand interaction above a light table, and phone interaction with the tracking of waving phones. There were 6 scenes, cycled every hour for the public.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This bracelet is a gift from one of my friends. He had bought it from the budist monks in Ulan Ude, Russia. He said that he and the monks have blessed it by bathing it in vodka and left in a temple for one day, and he had drunk vodka with monks along the blessing process 🙂

Corporate Identity: City Guide Website

NFT (not for tourists)







NFT is an annually city guide for the US. There are different city guides for each city. It is obvious that it is not for the tourists, but for the citizens. However, I have to admit that it is attractive for the tourist too. It has also an iphone app.

I like NFT’s motto, because it is attractive for eveyone. The book and iphone app’s interface design seems simple and cool.




glasgow4 is a touristic city guide website for Glasgow. You can search the events according to date and types. You can also make a reservation for  the flight to Glasgow, or hotels and restaurants in Glasgow.

I like the layout of the website, it is cool and userfriendly; and I like the dark colors that seperates it from the other city guide websites.







This is a city guide website for Bern, Switzerland. Its design is simple and userfriendly. When you write date interval and the certain type of the event that you want, it gives you a list of the events that match your criteria. It has also an city guide ipod application that you can buy. This is a touristic city guide.






11 is similar to, but it is belong to government. Event search method is the same. It also gives information about the city and places to go. You can download the brochures of the events, too.

Its design is simple and I think it is boring.

No Man’s Festival

This is a video of an annual spring festival in Istanbul. Actually, I found it interesting, because it is not supported by any corporation or institution. These people wear their costumes, take their instruments, pois and juggling balls to the street and enjoy spring. I like the idea behind the festival that is associated with the film, “Noviembre” (Alfredo and his friends try to perform a free theater show in streets by going against authority.). It is so nice to see people’s spirit and unity in an independent organization like this.
