NCKU Professor Designs Signature Scarf For University Anniversary-wn
Using the banyan park at the heart of the NCKU campus as inspiration, Cho designed the scarf which presents NCKU's main colours, mixing the banyan park green, bright blue sky and the university's royal poinciana red logo.
According to Cho, wearing this unique and comforting keepsake connects you to the NCKU family, wherever you are in the world.
Cho who is an alumnus of the university currently serves as an assistant professor in ICID. He used his own software, MovISee, to translate the campus scenery with 'a digital touch' into a gestural and abstract pattern.
The 200 x 70 cm scarf is made of 100% wool.
MovISee is a digital software designed by Cho for people to create personal visual outputs.
He said, a depth camera is used to create mixed reality for people to explore the selected information and ultimately transform their understanding the ability of their body movement to create composite customized visual outputs.
'It is a system to recreate information and explore personal creativity,' he added.
