Aware ChairInteractive Object expressing our sitting posture
Spending hours sitting, often staring a screen, is part of our modern reality. We forget ourselves and ourbodieo when we spend so much time in this passive mode. The goal of Aware Chair is to help return our focus to our physicality using humor and mischief.
There are two parts of the project, Chair and Mouse cursor. The chair responses to poor posture by abruptly shifting and changing its form - literally forcing the person sitting off the chair. The mouse reacts to poor posture by becoming less of a tool and more of obstruction by obscuring the computer screen. Each is, in its own way, a non-traditional method of info-visualization.
