Dawn Wong Hang Yue
Hi! This is Dawn HangYue, with a surname Wong, originally came from a warmer subtropical planet, Hong Kong. I was once a product designer, and now work as an independent play designer based in Gothenburg, Sweden after I finished my MFA in Child Culture Design.
Child in urban space is the main focus in my work, I work with outdoor play artefacts and environment, and even soft hacking in urban space. Recently together with architect Vici Hofbauer, we form Studio Vadd, specifically work with cityscape investigation with children, and interactive dialog projects for Municipality of Gothenburg.
As a designer I enjoy cooperating with different professionals and organisations from different culture. I have been participating in an urban lab, “Transforming the republic” in Athens 2017, where we made a sensory mapping for the urban ecosystem. In 2014, together with artists and programers, we created experimental installations with wearable technology under a residency program called Critical Hit in Montreal.
In addition to my competence in child culture, I handle design seriously to give the values of playfulness to not just children, but everyone, because I believe play and design is like a multi key to unlock pre-understanding between people and open up ideas to a little better world.
