Alice Wang’s work ranges from the Fast Typing Keyboard to White Lies weighing scales to Grass Scanners that tell you how green your front garden is, all illustrating the ironic and absurd habits and behaviours that lay deep among all of us. Alice uses design as a language to explore social issues; to observe and remind us about humans’ complex emotions; uses parody and irony to make people laugh and self-reflect.
