Everyday Conversation

Everyday Conversation explores relationships amongst common objects, like fans, and our relationship with them through animism.

When the fans are alone, they talk and gesture to each other using the language of fans, air displacement and sound. But ,due to their shy and timid nature, when a human enters their presence, they stop talking. Eventually, if they feel safe, they will slowly begin to talk again. However, if they sense motion and become frightened, they will go silent.

Early prototypes of this project can be found on my Vimeo page under the title Ecologies of Animate Systems.
