Dalziel & Pow has created an interactive installation that aims to show design’s power to be “playful, accessible and engaging”.
The installation, set to be installed at Retail Design Expo 2016, invites visitors to place a selection of every day objects – a box, a plant, a smartphone and a coffee pot – onto four sensors. This then triggers bespoke film content and accompanything soundtracks.
The films feature different interpretations of the objects from different designers at Dalziel & Pow. It features viewpoints from a graphics, digital, interiors and strategy perspective – for example, interpretations of the box vary from collected typographic scraps for a graphic designer, to possibilities of the cube for a digital designer, and a self-assembled wooden box for an interior designer.
Visitors can play with different sequences of objects, and “remix” the visuals and audios, creating layered montages.
