THE SMART THEATER
Objects whose functions are shrouded with mystery have long intrigued us. The design of such an object, or Token of Wonder (undertaken by a group of four), often carries with it some kind of message to the user through engagement or interaction. The Smartphone Theater, through its primitive means of making, proposes a question regarding our reverence of technology. With our phones becoming smarter, we rely more and more on technology for both answers to our everyday questions and our standard of beauty. This object seeks to question the validity of this trust by allowing means of ancient making to enhance a contemporary experience - the creation of a physical social network through the amplification of sound.
