Joo Youn Paek with “ultimate goal to deliver laughs and twists to our daily lives” created this pillow wig for his Independent Study’s project. I think it is cool and useful when you have to take a long bus or train ride everyday.
“Pillowig” is hand made wearable pillow comforting trieness of people in daily lives, enabling users to sleep comfortably whenever and whenever theyd like. When user test is done in public spaces – subway, airplane, library, class room and laundromat, viewers commented: I would like to have it for my trip., Very funny. This is practical, but a laugh, too.” I made 50 limited editions and sold 47 pieces at the exhibition of the work and gained Pillowig fans. Two months later fans did a group performance piece at the Old Palace, Seoul.
