Hi!Me! is a conceptual design that inscribes traces of a person's height from childhood to adulthood on a graffiti tree made of an upright wooden board attached to the wall. The graffiti tree is combined with an audio time capsule of vocal recordings and a silhouette projection. Whenever parents mark the height of their child with chalk and an attached RFID tag nearby, Hi!Me! will begin to record voices and capture silhouettes. "Re-touching" an inscription with a specially made RFID reader will trigger the time capsule that was created, providing connections to one's younger self.
