Terms and Conditions: exploring our becoming with the digital through designing objects for sensemaking
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis [Artistic work]
Internet and digitalization is changing our reality. Blurring away physical boundaries the Cloud ignores geographical distances. It is an enormous space to share information globally, it provides us with spectacular possibilities, but how is our entanglement with this digital dimension affecting us?
My aim is to explore our becoming with the digital and to evoke personal judgement in our everyday use of digital devices.
I explore by challenging my preconceptions through confrontation with situations and events alien to me. My curiosity drives me to make sense of my environment. I make sense through designing, through making.
My objects, the Haze, the Self Portal and Bad Habit/Phone cover, are all in different ways attemts to makes sense of immaterial aspects or phenomena in our relations to and through the digital. Through putting the objects in relation to your body you can yourself experience and feel these ambiguous relations and make bodily sense of them.
