As a designer and visual art educator, my goal is to create engaging experiences that give people creative confidence. I achieve this through providing opportunities for people to play. Regardless of age or ability, though play, people can gain the courage to create as long as they are provided with the right conditions.

I'mPerfect Human is an interactive game piece based on an excerpt from Jorgan Leth's movie 'The Perfect Human' (1967). I'mPerfect Human is based on the concepts of imperfection, originality and improvisation. Users are pushed to move differently than the 'Perfect Human' dancing in the adjacent frame, and thereby are given the freedom to perceive what 'different' is to them. For comparison purpose, there is a difference meter and a score giving them continuous feedback on their performance. The more different they are, the higher they score!
