Living alone does not mean to be lonely. The project looks at a time when the phenomenon of people who choose to live alone is prevalent, and explores man's search for an emotional response in an age of technology and artificial intelligence. The objects "live" with the individual in his or her home environment, and with an act of human gestures offers an emotional-communicative echo that accompanies everyday life.
What did you create?
I created a series of objects that refer to a period when more people choose to live alone and seek emotional response in technology and artificial intelligence. The objects "live" with the individual in his or her home environment, and with an act of human gestures offers an emotional-communicative echo that accompanies everyday life. The Bug- using a light sensor it "feels" the first ray of sunlight in the morning and opens a crack to let it in. The plant- mutual care, the plant gives an immediate feedback when watered. It will "wilt" when not taking care of, but will never die. The Gong- during the day it slightly breathes, and at night time in absolute darkness it rings three times and puts me to sleep.
Why did you make it?
The project started with looking at the "evolution" of a product. I was looking at a time when the phenomenon of people living alone by choice is more and more common, what characterizes this period and how it changes our attitude towards The objects in our home environment. Many articles about people developing feelings for their Irobot cleaners, raised a question about its primal use as a physical need - cleaning, and suddenly answers a different need, an emotional need, when we treat it as if it was a pet and gives it a name. An attempt to understand the "alone" in the home, And the new need within the "isolated" space, is what led me to engage with this project.
How did you make it?
I designed, implemented and produced the project myself, apart from technological consultation. Starting with object modeling, 3D printing. Implementation of the Arduino Code and the creation of mechanical mechanisms. And widespread use of the workshop.
