Today, it is not uncommon to find ourselves remote from those we love. While mobile and social technologies offer the promise of infinite connection, recent studies suggest that it could be these very technologies that are exacerbating a sense of loneliness. In attempt to help people feel more connected, we have created BodyPods, a remotely paired set of communicating chairs that facilitate a sense of presence by leveraging implicit actions such as sitting to communicate that someone you care about is home. BodyPods use pressure sensors and lights to generate and display “bodyprint.” We explored how embedding sensing in a novel chair form factor to create bodyprint could allow BodyPods to identify different people based on their bodyprint, which would allow remote chairs to indicate who was using them. Findings from a 10 person user study suggest bodyprints may be distinctive, particularly among a small group of family members that have different heights and weights.+ More details

EQQISSINEQ is the word for peace in the language of the Kallaalit-Eskimos of Greenland – a people that has never lead war in its entire history. WALK IN PEACE ON MOTHER EARTH – this is the message of the interviewees of different cultures that are heard in this touching documentary. They tell us about their knowledge, their worldview, their social interaction and their respect for everything that surrounds us. We can draw on these messages to fathom that the extensive global changes involve the chance to create true peace and freedom. If we find the courage to listen to these messages with our hearts, and to act with our heart and soul, a healing relationship between today and yesterday can arise. It is the chance for profound and truly lived peace, wholesomeness, love and happiness.

Jesse is of German descent. She lives in New York City. To stay in touch with her loved ones she uses Skype. “I hear you.” is created from snippets of Skype conversations recorded during a one-year period. The aim was to capture moments of disruption caused by weak connections that generate fragmentation of the image. Though these moments are disruptive, the fragmented image transmits a visual power that is intriguing. However, the artist’s fascination with video calling technology goes beyond the mediated image: it is a curiosity for perception, time & space, changing communication methods, complexity and the power of love.+ More details
