INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

Chairs

Leave a comment

First, I made this insane video…Let’s say it comments on the dangers of the internet of things…

I then put the video on my living room’s tv (we run our tv off a computer), and set up a small bluetooth keyboard so that anytime any key is pressed, the video is played. I then put the keyboard in the cushion of our living room’s chair. So whenever someone sits in the chair, the video plays.

I then used a hidden tablet to hopefully periscope my roommates struggle to figure out what is wrong with the tv here using a fake twitter (@ImN0tAChair) I made for the last character in the video. Unfortunately, at the time of this post, my roommate’s haven’t sat in the chair since the periscope went up, and my dog just knocked over the tablet setup. However, I have had a lot of fun pretending to be this chair on twitter today.

I was hoping the periscope performance would broadcast the love/hate relationship I have with technology, but so far it’s only increased my frustrations with technology at this time.
