Kuangxi is an interdisciplinary researcher and designer who navigates any swamp of information, gains insights, identifies patterns, constructs and overhauls systems. She helps the systems take shape into a kaleidoscope of facts and details with a combination of rigorous extrapolation and unbridled flexibility. Academically trained as an architecture/innovation student, her explorations cover a wide range of fields including wireless communication, acoustic environment, smart material, human-plant interface, pharmaceutical information, etc. Skills cover analysis, multimedia communication, procedural/interactive 3D packages, simulation, etc.

Rippling is a construction/furnish material that could help us develop electromagnetic furniture for a Wi-Fi friendly architecture. The project tries to improve wireless signal efficiency at a novel intervention point, not the end points of a signal channel but the channel itself, the environment in which signals propagate. It is a decorative panel that guides signals to where you need them, a door that invites signals into your bedroom, a lamp that focuses signals onto your desk, a passive, cost effective and sustainable network solution, as well as a tangible, intuitive, user-friendly interface enabling a new human-wave interaction.
