Description

Designer's statement: We live in a world that operates on bits and bytes; a merging of the material and the immaterial. Our configurations of physical objects all have a layer of technology embedded in them, creating a potential for everything to sense, record and communicate. Delirious Things is a materialization of a phenomenon that arises from the unobservable. It is a contemplation of traveling bits in a network of everyday objects, affecting their physicality and questioning their potential. It is a system that bonds the digital and the electrical with the physical and the kinetic. It moves fluidly between philosophy, science and art in order to imbed political theories dedicated to nature, ethics and affect, shifting the focus from the human experience of things to the things themselves.
