Random Things that Happen

Metal vs. Plush Toy Exploration

Metal

  • Cold, connective
  • Textured, hard wire
  • Heartbeat sound (reset)
  • Sculpture is solid
  • Sculpture in a gallery, has a don’t touch implication, so will the viewer really touch it anyways?

Plush Toy

  • Fluffy
  • Toy, play
  • children, materialism
  • whatever the value is
  • play, sell

I’m testing the installation with a heartbeat sound, it’ll change depending on what the person picks. I think I want a receipt printer, it adds a very consumer feeling to it.

I guess hacking a keyboard would work. Hacking buttons that are attached to the plush toys that trigger identifiers, so we know what organs were touched. It’ll add value. Have a “you selected”, then a collect button that generates what you bought.

 This randomly came in the mail. I ordered a necklace from eBay and ended up getting an LCD screen. Interesting, it’s like the people knew that I use an Arduino

Anyways, I messaged them and they got back to me. They’ll be shipping my actual item and I don’t have to ship this back. I might be able to show the value of the items in this and I didn’t even have to pay extra for this. Awesome!
