Nynke Koster and David in den Bosch both graduated in 2013, respectively from the departments of Interior
Architecture and Furniture Design and Photography. In Milan they present a participatory project that reflects on the fast changing technological developments. The predictions are that within five years smartphones will have given way to convenient gadgets such as smartwatches and smartglasses.
The designers want to catch and capture this historical moment by making casts of visitors’ hands holding a smartphone. The alienating forms that result from the casting refer to the way our bodies adjust to the technology we use. During BACK STAGE ON STAGE this will result in
a growing collection of documents that will in a few years’ time prove how we used to use our smartphones.
