Looking Outwards

Harvesting your own bone… With this particular speculative project, the user can insert extra bone cells into their arm to grow their own artifacts for them to share with other people or just to keep for yourself. Though highly speculative, I think it is an interesting perspective to use our own flesh and blood to create artifacts or actual products.

Another project by Mike Thompson, this lamp interestingly seeks to make people aware of the value of light. Like his other bone project, this lamp more or less seeks to create a discussion about the particulat ethos of such an object. I think for the sake of discussion it’s really provocative, and the interaction is an appropriate one, but from my point of view, it doesn’t really do more than the initial surface level discussion. I guess the extreme depth is not what I sense.


Here’s an example a very functional (albeit a bit difficult to wrap your head around at first) type of interactive design. What’s neat is that it’s also open source! Free to incorporate or alter into your other projects.
