Its been quite a while since I have done a poll around here, so why not today. On one of my blog reading tangents I stumbled upon the i-Bum by interactive designer Tomomi Sayuda. My first thought, um, why. My second thought, okay, this could be interesting but a little peeping tom-ish. According to Sayuda, “the arse is the window of the soul” and the focus of the project was to show a visual of a “less popular” part of our body without really being noticed, although, I think if I sat on a chair and heard something moving under my butt, I’m not too sure how understanding I would be! A sensor detects when someone sits and automatically creates a scan of their backside which is then produced from the side of the chair. Overall, could be a fun art project, but as far as an actual chair, well, what do you think!? Be sure to check out the rest of Sayuda’s work, this guy really thinks outside of the box to create an artistic world… I love when that happens!
