THE SPACE WE SHARE
Creating a meaningful dialogue between people and their environment
(2021, Interactive wall unit)
Being alone at home can feel very lonely. This is even more noticeable in the current pandemic, a time in which isolation is the norm. When one feels lonely, one often seeks for connection with others. But could there be a way to gain this feeling of connectivity within your own, personal environment?
‘The space we share’ shows the first prototype that aims to answer that question. This interactive wall unit, which reacts to physical movements, is intended to make you feel more aware of your physical presence in- and the dynamics within the space. Simply let it move in the background, knowing that you are not alone. Or actively engage in a physical conversation by moving closer towards it.
This project was part of Breaking Distance, a three-month digital workshop about creative technology organized by Interactive Design Studio KROM.
