Show RCA work

Major project:

A Fabricated Conversation

The work takes its inspiration from the double chair, found in the Valladolid, a town in Mexico. 'Its local name is ‘Los Confidentes’ – the confidants. In other words, it invites passers-by to take a seat and engage in conversation with someone intimate.' In a similar vein, the work invites strangers or lovers to sit together and interact. The digital plans for the chair are open source, allowing for modification suited to the end user. This allows for the dissemination of the idea as well the physical object. The accompanying publication creates a catalyst for communication in the form of performance. Two users are required to read aloud different information to create a back and forth narrative emulating a conversation.

Info

  • A Fabricated Conversation is a collaboration between designers Iain Worgan and Cameron Walker. The work explores the idea that digital technology – and in this case digital fabrication – can aid face-to-face communication and physical interaction, something we long for in the post-digital age.
