Electricity is just like... WOAH! is an array of products that use sensors-based technology to bring their function to life. The user is encouraged to act theatrically, for instance, dancing in front of a mirror in order for it to reflect their image, or screaming at a multi-plug to turn on its power.
“Electronic devices strongly narrate our behavior and their interfaces often offer very narrow scenarios of use. I believe electricity could be used in a much wider and poetic manner. There might be a limitation to technology, but there are no limits to how and where it can be applied.
My aim is to create a stronger link between fiction and reality, by using improvisational methods that subvert everyday rituals. The experience that my work fosters should allow people to be uninhibited in the way they act and react to the world around them.
