Articulate

This installation enables visitors to share their thoughts, just by speaking their minds. It encourages to step forward and share with a broad audience in the physical world.

People have become used to sharing their messages over the internet; the digital world, where it’s easy to let your voice be heard. In the meantime, real life interactions with others have become rarer. Everyone seems to be comfortable in their digital bubble, whilst often ignoring others in their direct environment.

In an attempt to change that, we built an installation that enabled users to share their thoughts and ideas in the physical world. We tested it at our studio with friends, but put it on the shelve afterwards, hoping it could be exhibited more publicly some day. That day came when we were asked to do a side project for DOCfeed, a documentary festival in Eindhoven.

Bringing people together and creating a better understanding of each other and the world in general is one of the main goals of the festival. That made us rethink our first prototype. We built a new version that saves messages and brings them back to life for other visitors to see. Through that, it reflects the moods, thoughts and opinions of anyone that wants to share in their direct physical realm.
