"Declarations of Interdependence" (declarationsofinterdependence.com) is a series of interactive prototypes that reposition individual and collective roles:
- A computer with multi-user keyboard requiring two or three users for operation.
- YouByUs, a social media platform in which your profile is crowdsourced by your social network.
- A website only accessible by quorum browsing: when a minimum number of users simultaneously connect from the same location.
- A machine that monitors group interactions to algorithmically select and visually represent the most dominant individual.
Through these designed experiences, the project questions the centrality of the individual user in the interactions of contemporary social media and human-computer interfaces.
