The CHARAKTORS project proposes a modular system that allows for playful characterization of mobile devices. The elements of the system interpret a communicators’ relationship, dialogue, social position, self and personal style through physical form. Together, skeleton frame, bodies, appendages, and apparel offer a new way to reflect, craft and manifest self and relationship through malleable materials. Each part offers an opportunity to elicit and amplify physical expression and gestures during a phone-to-phone conversation. The system makes us recognize how we interact with physical things around us and leverage ways we express ourselves or “pre-design” the relationships we have with particular people through the platform of the mobile phone.
