Dephone | 2012
Diploma project. Master of Arts – Media Design.
Tutors: Auger / Loizeau and Douglas Edric Stanley.

Smartphones have spread into our daily lives.
Their multifunctionality monopolizes the attention and contributes to the addiction of users.
Everyday behaviors have changed considerably and now people sharing the same space interact less (physically) with each other.
This project is a critical reflection on this reality and an exploration of new types of interaction.

Installation: domestic objects (wood and PS) : cage, alarm clock,
mail indicator, bus schedule, social network and business.

Technical information: Wi-fi communication between the smartphone and the objects (Arduino + Wi-fi Shield) .
Specific application where the kind of information is chosen.

Collaboration: Pierre Rossel (Arduino programmation), David Hodgetts (Xcode iOS) and Camille Scherrer.
