Objects After Bodies
Themes Other, Tangibility / Senses
Bad posture causes the slow deformation of our bodies. People are unconsciously guided by objects they are living with. For example, train travelers; they get lost in their phones and think they are sitting in a “comfortable”, laid-back position.
If our bodies are actually changing, how will seating objects look like in the future? How can I make people aware of the deformation of their body? How can I show this deformation in seating objects?
A series of three different objects force your body in a certain position. By the forced ways of sitting down, you will notice your ”comfortable” position isn’t that comfortable. Fold yourself in this colorful series of seat objects and think about how often you use these postures in your daily life.
