"TAMO" - The Final Project


INSPIRATION

Smartphone addiction is one typical example of the disadvantages of technology. It is a common social phenomenon that many people check their smartphones compulsively. Even when they are stay with others, they seem to "talk to" their phones more than to make a real chat with people nearby.

So I want to make an installation that can remind people to put down their phones, head up and make a real talk with others.




MATERIALS AND TOOLS





CARDBOARD PROTOTYPE








THE PROCESS





WHAT I LEARNT

- Prototype is just prototype. (Cardboard has different properties to plywood and acrylic.)

- Wiring can be a big problem.

- Measurement is important.

- Tools can be very handy. Don't be afraid of them and use them right.

- Fabrication can be both fun and frustrating.

- Don't forget your lunch and dinner. Take a break between each step.


Thank you Ben!
