DETAILS OF THE WORK
AWARDS 2020 SILVER
Although there is an object in front of your eyes for sure, the object disappears when you look at it without a smartphone. I wanted to give that sensation of surprise that hits you with a smartphone.
To emphasize the sensation, I introduced the conflicting experience of being an extension of the body but not actually being that as the shape disappears when touched.
For the motif, we chose vending machines, road signs, mailboxes, colored cones, etc. which are common anywhere in Japan so that they can blend into everyday life.
STYLY Mobile(APP) is required for the ultra experience of the work. Learn how to experience it here.
