Concept + Goals.
Autonomous Objects is our Major Studio 2 group project, and we decided to actually build these objects.
Concept：We are making a series of experimental prototypes that explore the ubiquitous but novel relationship between humans and objects. By reimagining the messages behind everyday objects, the project enables everyday objects to communicate and negotiate with us in their (possibly) preferable way.
This is a project everyone can experience. We want people to rethink their relationship with everyday objects through this fun and playful interaction.
Description of the project.
Chair: Chairs also have work hours. They are happy to assist you during work hours but they can also get crappy sometimes. They also preserve the right to refuse anyone when they are on a break.
Radio: A radio who lives in the past.
Lamp: A lamp who only wakes up at daytime.
Printer: A printer who needs a break occasionally.
