Session Log 04-05-2011

We will write a manifesto as a set of guides in the approach to augmented artifacts. Words like ‘every day’ and ‘experimental’. We should make a critic (being it good or not) about artifacts and find a position. Find what we like and don’t like about Denis text.

We have some scenarios: public space, private space, social artifacts and cinema (Story telling).

What is an object is everything an object. How big can it be? Piano is an object? How many objects? is it relevant to the project the number?

“Object of desire”.
Betaville. Political transparency.

It is no object is Artifacts. Artifact is a subclass of objects.

Japanese artist not being afraid of commercializing their pieces of art. Eliana: what if at this state say I want to build a robot that laughs. I would be a stupid idea but as you developed it it gets interesting. Presentation matters.

We want to set up a room to start research and experimentation (private space).

–          Change the roll of every object.
–          Augmentation of irrelevant objects.

Downside: it is time consuming, money consuming, not movable.

Eliana says: “A professor had to make a vacuum cleaner, his approach was not redesigning the vacuum but get to the problem from the root: the problem was “their is dust in things”. His design response was the design of the curtains.”

Where objects come from? For some people they are brought to the supermarket by a stork

Frido: “The whole house is becoming a unique computer”. May be would be nice to make a project connecting Android to objects

Day made of Glass.
Wahha Go Go.
Kentucky Fried Movie.
Fab (Book): personalization of machine, everyone builds his own machine. Personalization is not just changing color but building your own functions.
Ray Kurzweil.
Pecha Kucha: example 
Human Interface
