This first piece of machine simulates the experience of drawing on the computer with a mouse. Users hold the pen with the machine the way they hold a mouse. The machine is designed to draw straight lines, mimicking the same feeling of control.
This piece is mimicking the experience of navigating the cursor with the touchpad on laptops. It is inspired by the feature on Apple’s MacBook, in which the cursor would enlarge when users rapidly rubbing the touchpad trying to locate it on the screen.
This necklace-like piece is commenting on the situation where people are constantly on their phone and fixed to this position where ever they go. This embodiment of scrolling is trying to identify the heavy reliance on mobile devices and bring awareness to it.
#4 Zoom in / out
This is a magnifier referencing the experience of zooming in and out on mobile devices. There is a magnifying lens attaching at the back, which allows users to actually "zoom in” on things with this magnifier when they open the gate.
Deleting is an action only exists in digital spaces, making things disappear in one press. Unlike throwing, cutting, or any other actions that we do in the real world to “make things disappear,” to delete is not to perform a process of removing something, but a simple and instant command. This machine is designed to exaggerate that feeling of being in control, recreating the experience of making something disappear in just one press.
