An interactive artwork about microchips, critters & touch that critiques contemporary contactless technologies

Media: Raspberry Pi, fence posts, plastic, Arduino, RFID cards & sensors, drawing, Python, several thousand transistors 250x250x250cm

This artwork invited visitors into a gallery to create collages on a monitor from photographs with linked themes about human contact with nonhuman entities. Visitors changed the artwork using RFID cards that were programmed to display different sections of images based on which card was tagged at which device. The artwork encourages people to participate alone or together with other groups, and full images or mythical collages are possible from the images. Designed without audio and with care taken to ensure accessibility and interactivity for those with disability and limited mobility.

The artwork draws influence from speculative ethics, posthumanist philosophy, and time spent with critters.
