The perfect invention for the modern urbanite just may very well be the ‘Pillowig’ by JooYoon Paek. This Seoul-born artist based in New York has a knack for creating designs that draw from human behavior.

If you have ever been uncomfortable while trying to sleep on the subway, plane or anywhere else, the ‘Pillowig’ is the pillow and wig hybrid of your mobile urbanite dreams.

Implications - Jooyoon Paek definitely creates a very atypical wig by using her skills in human observation to create objects that interact with viewers in the spaces where she installs them. Paek is an eccentric artist with a great sense of vision. Check out the gallery above to see some clever shots of the ‘Pillowig’ in action.
