PROJECT INFO

A series of dysfunctional objects that play upon technological metaphors, exploring the meaning behind the usage of terms such as “Smart”, “Cloud” and “Virtual Reality”. How do these words affect our understanding and interaction with technology? Do they only act as rhetorics that persuades the user in believing nonexistent qualities?

“Pulse” is a smart wearable that reacts to guilt and calms down upon being gently squeezed.

“Point” is file sharing device that can upload and download files by pointing at clouds in the sky.

“Peek” is a headset that traverses the virtual world and real world through the left and right eyes.
