Telepathic Technology 2013
Too often people consider the evolving relationship between humans and technology leading us away from what makes us human. We imagine technology of the future not elevating us past but leading us back to our natural environment, allowing us to experience the world in a way we have never seen it before. The essence of these experiences will be able to be captured and sent wirelessly through devices that connect with our minds.
This multi-disciplinary studio uses scenarios, vignettes (Filmic portrait which demonstrates, offers the viewer an essence, atmosphere, possible experience instigated by a designed system) to explore meaningful or emergent social behaviors, exchanges, emotional experiences and living spaces based upon sensing technologies that can interact, influence or redirect our senses to provide value (and) improve how we value our lives/living. Rarely have designers anticipated the full implications of new technologies on the larger culture, the lives of individuals, or the built environment. From the automobile and television to mobile phones and gene sequencers, initial functional intent represents only a small part of the total impact of new technology. In the interest of increasing the potential relevance and impact of new technological capabilities, this project will explore and map territories of linked social, cultural, psychological behavior. The objective of the investigation is to play, reveal, tweak, challenge, interrogate, interpret, abuse, and test the limits of our senses and our adaptive responses to the influence of new technologies.
