Being aware of what we are making is an essential critique for fast industrial development. Last semester, a photography critique I read claims that artists are gradually losing their voicing for their works. They are shocked by fast-developing tech devices like algorithm photo generation machines. Most of the time, the machine-made photos create supersaturated pictures to allure the masses ‘ eyes. Because artists barely know how the machine generates the image, they feel sad to lose their control of artistic value in the future machine-made photos.
But these projects and the article refresh my mind about using artist’s eyes to concern tech. The article’s proposals and MIT ambient group’s works show that human-central-interaction could be interpreted more broadly than people interact with objects with the screen. Responsive is a medium trying to extend the traditional environments to a digital context.
The study subject of response might lead us an another humanize future with tech assistive. At least some computer artists are doing that to fill the gap for the misunderstanding between art and tech.
Detection for a school library: Sometimes, we do not know if other students have already taken up the seats in the library. Especially in the final week, it is hard for us to find a seat in school. A PIR sensor on the table might help us to identify whether there is a seat or not. It helps students to save time from finding seats in a full library. Also, to provide a quiet study place, the microphone sound sensor is used to detect the library’s noise level. Students who want to chat with others would mind their speaking voice as the led light up.
