Living interfaces

Check it out, this project uses an old Intel digital microscope!

The topic of the project works between interactiondesign and the biology. It concerns the communication between animal and the machine. The animal represents the user of a system and has the possibility to intervene. The User of the System are the so-called „Daphnien”. These organisms are placed under a microscope and form an interface in the system cycle. Thus they have access to all processes in the computer and are able to manipulate them. The animal communicates with the computer and the borders between technology and the animal world blurs.

The system consists thereby of the animal, a microscope, an apperatur with LED`s, the computer and a digital aquarium.
