Installation for Dublin Science Gallery
Transnatural Art & Design
Dutch Design Week
Playful SelfPlayful Self is an interactive exhibition piece for the Dublin Science Gallery which illustrates our research on a future of “biometric body data transfer”.
In the exhibition, visitors can interact with objects which, when touched, instantly receive their personal body data and reflect it immediately in different ways.
In the future we can assume that all biometrics of our body will be available instantly or continuously. Most objects around us will listen to our “body data” and react accordingly.
Our installation encourages visitors to experience such a future, so that they might become more aware of the objects around them and consider if those objects could or should be listening.
