plexiglass plaster sacrifice

of technology is an interactive art installation that investigates the relation between technology and the society and discusses the role of technology from a religious angle. The artwork is in form of a technology chapel where a plaster sculpture is the altar. A plexiglas table in front of the altar serves as a table of prayers where the participator has a choice to light a prayer glowstick and place it in one of the drilled holes in the tableplate.

Interactive art installation “sacrifice of technology� BA project exhibited at toldboden, aalborg university, may 2013

Inspired by princeples of hypnosis, the artwork uses persuasive visuals videomapped on the sculpture together with hypnotic message from audiospotlight to convince the participator that technology is the new religion. In this way, the artwork aims to give an artistic comment on how technology with the growing popularity and salvific promises has a potential to conquer the previous believes.

interactive sustainable art installation “automated blood drawing machine� exhibited at platform4, 2012


ABDM automatic blood drawing machine

is an artistic method for materialization of an unconscious body signal (here human pulse) gained through individual interaction as well as via collaboration between participators. A pulse sensor is implemented in the installation and the information it provides is defined. The project aims to investigate how blood is part of a sustainable practice and includes a study about the use of blood in a cultural context.

3d sketches illustrating the main elements

By donating the pulse signal in one of the sensor stands, the participator can either control the dripping of blood from the bags through the needle or control the movement of the platform with canvas where the dripping becomes visible. When two participators are donating pulse at the same time, a colaborative painting of random drippings is being created on the canvas. The movement and dripping are both based on the pulse signal of the participator interacting with the installation. The random dripping paintings can be seen on:

pocket planner design

Proposal for a “distance fighter�. Pocket planner including 6 postcards ready to be ripped off and sent to closest friends! I got inspired by GO -cards (free and fun, bring postcards to life). We all like to recieve a postcard. Additionally i combine my cards with something used by many on a daily basis -a planner.

feeling it? distance

time

stamp it!

CAUTION! By sending postcards you agree on taking risk of getting closer to people you miss and love. First page of the planner

My slogan: feeling it? stamp it! together with the symbolic measure tape should inspire the user to send his thoughts on cards and kill the distance. The measure tape is here a symbol of distance in both time and space.

CAUTION! By sending postcards you agree on taking risk of getting closer to people you miss and love.

Hard case, front

Footnote should in humoristic way lead thoughts towards cards and friends/family. The note is a teaser to what one finds in the planner.
