...the project explores a speculative scenario where Things see other Things. Objects enhanced with
3D vision - by means of a Kinect camera - become their own researchers and designers. However, rather
than replicate themselves they exploit glitches and errors – a virus in the system - to make each
of them unique. Using a research artifact – an infected mug - questions of Object agency are tackled.
We reflect upon the notion of constant surveillance and explore how the tangible interfaces modulate
information across physical and digital domains...
...the glitch- virus- is digitally ‘cultured’ and studied in the form of a differential growth algorithm following additive and subtractive patterns...
