wood sculpture with interactive animations, 550cm x 350cm, 2021

how_to_technology is an interactive mixed media installation that explores the phenomenological and physiological aspects of technology in our lives. How do the designs of objects like smartphones, computer keyboards, and mouses impact our sense and the range of motions we can perform with our bodies? How are these affordances determined and how might we play with mundane repetitive actions we perform on these devices? Exploring actions we perform everyday with our digital devices—like scrolling, tapping, and swiping—this exhibit allows participants to view these actions from an outside perspective and to engage in new types of bodily movements and affordances with the technology around them.
