Research Detail: 

My primary research focuses on narrative design that explores design systems, methods, and forms to create multiple visual narratives. In my work, I study the relationships between multiple narratives and simultaneity, transformation, duality, modularity, polyhedralness1, and ambivalence as visual concepts. These studies allow me to discover metaphorical perspectives, to pay attention to everyday objects, and to visualize non-visible information (such as temperature) in order to understand its meaning.
