Asian Father

December 2014

‘Asian Father’ proposed to mend cultural misunderstandings of Asian parental identity through a humous questioning and critique of stereotypes.

The project consists of an AI Asian Father machine, an evaluation procedure, a distribution system and a mobile phone application.

Through a thorough evaluation process a user profile is generated. The ‘Asian Father’ (AI machine) provides strict advice and harsh commands to ensure the successful completion of activities and the adoption of positive and productive habits. The ‘Asian Father’ expects discipline, success in all fields and respect towards elders.
