Super O2 Patch is a concept wearable device, initially suggested by two artists, Moon Kyungwon and Jeon Joonho. This project started with the idea of creating futuristic, wearable product that helps human to survive when major climate change happens. O2 Patch was designed for ‘NEWS FROM NOWHERE: Freedom Village’ exhibition, a collaboration between Hyundai and National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) where every year, Hyundai works together with an esteemed Korean artist to demonstrate how we can broaden the boundaries of Korean contemporary art and sharing it with wider audiences globally. It’s a progress for humanity.
Designed by BKID, Super O2 Patch is part of the project that demonstrate how human adapt to a new environment where we no longer live in a planet with oxygen-rich atmosphere. Many scientists have warned us that Earth’s Oxygen level is slowly dropping, if this keeps happening, will human survive?
This O2 Patch is a future vision of how we can still provide Oxygen for every cell in our body in order to survive. A futuristic wearable patch with small, replaceable oxygen tube could be one way that helps sustain our existence on Earth.
