'You Should' Squarespace


Squarespace

Ad Campaign

My passion for the craft and sport of figure skating, along with this site, kevinshum.com, was featured in the 2016 Squarespace ad campaign, You Should.

You should chase what you love. See how Squarespace customer and world class figure skater Kevin Shum pursues his passion for figure skating.
We believe the world is a better place when we chase what we love. It can be anything. A hobby, a passion project, or even a wild idea. When we’re all in, we all benefit. So go for it. Find your passion and make something you’re proud of.

Website template

The design of kevinshum.com was the inspiration for the new Squarespace tempalte, Eamon.

Spaces That Perform Themselves

 
 

Program in Media Arts and Sciences Master thesis: Nicole L’Huillier 

Building on the understanding of music and architecture as creators of spatial experience, this thesis presents a novel way of unfolding music’s spatial qualities in the physical world. Spaces That Perform Themselves exposes an innovative response to the current relationship between sound and space: where we build static spaces to contain dynamic sounds. What if we change the static parameter of the spaces and start building dynamic spaces to contain dynamic sounds?

Ori Systems

Summer 2016, I interned as a Software Engineer at Ori Systems, an MIT-startup transforming and redefining urban living spaces with robotic, shape-shifting furniture. Over the course of 3 months, I built the iOS and Android apps from the ground up. Essentially, the apps act as remote controls, which connect with the lights and transform the furniture.

MAS.110 Final Project


Frame by Frame

For my final project for MAS.111, Fundamentals of Computational Media Design, I pursued a new way of looking at figure skating jump and spin elements by taking frame-by-frame shots and stitching them together into one frame.

After doing multiple takes in order to get the perfect combination of lighting, composure, and composition, I used Photoshop to manually crop out each frame and stitch them together. Different opacities are used to create a sense of progression and movement.

Spring 2018 Exchange

Seit wann bist du hier in der Schweiz?

 
 

MIT eecs / ETH informatik: inaugural Exchange program, Spring 2018

For the Spring term, I revised Informatik at ETH Zürich in Switzerland. I had a chance to attend several courses spanning Machine Learning, Ubiquitous Computing, Case Studies in Practice, Human-Computer Interaction, 3D Vision, and German. 

In both Human-Computer Interaction and 3D Vision, I had a chance to work with the professors and industry leaders on semester-long projects that resulted in two term papers, presentations, and even a poster session at ETH.

One Onboarding Platform to Empower Everyone

Microsoft oneweek hackathon

As interns, we only have a limited amount of time over the summer to make a tangible impact. Currently, onboarding is frustrating. We envision a more seamless experience – one that is efficient, accessible, and intuitive.

 

issues

The new hire feels ready to make an impact faster because he/she feels part of the team and company.

The team doesn’t have to spend as much manpower and time onboarding the new employee.

 

solution

We are creating a platform that will walk a new intern, vendor, or full-time employee through all the necessary steps to onboard to Microsoft first and their team second. In essence, we are leveling the playing field – giving everyone the same opportunity to be successful in their day-to-day work and long-term career goals.
