TRUST

Barbara Visser
In this group project each person contributed to the design of
multiple objects, each at a different stage of the design process.
Every design evolved and changed as it was handed from one person to
the next, showing the variety of interpretations of a single idea.

Louse Schouwenberg
Investigate objects you trust. Why are they trustworthy and what are
the decisive characteristics? From the outcome of our analysis we

Oana Rades - Trust, Fear and the Public Domain
How can design influence and contribute to the creation of public
domains, counteracting the capsularization of society? We were
supposed to come up with concepts, scenarios, argwares that facilitate
new forms of collectivity, as spheres where exchange and interaction
between different individuals and groups is stimulated and where trust
can be created.

Two technological objects were choose as the topic of research one
analog and one digital which had a specific relationship to trust.
This information was then designed and reconfigured to find new
patterns and relationships and developed either into an archive or to
a product.

You Complete Me Chair
The You Complete Me Chair needs someone to sit in it. The weight of someone sitting down compresses the seat until it squeezes against the frame, uniting the two pieces together. Until then the frame and seat are separate; the chair is in two pieces. It is incomplete.
Tactile Passwords
I chose two technologies, locks and information storage, to investigate. I found some surprising overlaps between them, so I tried to merge the ideas behind these technologies. This resulted in a set of three principles of locks and three of information that match each other and show how information storage storage and locks are, in a way, two sides of the same coin.
