Elliot Woods from Kimchi and Chips
1.00pm 25th February in the Manchester Lecture Theatre, All Saints Building, MMU
The seminar will present the work and approach of Elliot’s interaction design studio. Kimchi and Chips designs
installations, products and services using a range of new media technologies and everyday materials. They are regularly
inventing patentable technologies to create new experiences for people living today, which they share through open source
software and workshops. http://www.kimchiandchips.com/
Kimchi and Chips have presented works in Seoul, Yokohama, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Milan, London and Manchester.
They have also been recently featured on Engadget, Design Boom, Create Digital Motion and Creative Application Network.
Elliot Woods is a Manchester based media artist who is one half of interactive art/design studio Kimchi and Chips. Elliot
graduated from the University of Manchester with an MPhys Physics. During his time at the university he took a year out
from studying to take a position at the Students’ Union, where he founded a bi-annual art/music event called Pangaea. This
introduced him into the world of combining event design with new media technology.
His first significant project was Litescape, a 3D volumetric projection system suitable for events and architectural
installations. With this project, he led a team to win 25,000GBP at the University’s Venture Further competition and went on to
exhibit the work in Aarhus Denmark and at SIGGRAPH Yokohama. Elliot began Kimchi and Chips in 2009 with Mimi Son, who at the
time was studying Interaction Design on the pilot year at Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design.
