The Interactive Sculpture creates a direct dialogue between urban dwellers and food producers. It consists of 2 camera devices, and 2 large scale screens. The idea reunites producers and consumers.
This concept celebrates social interaction between city dwellers and farmers, producers and consumers, through technological means.
The Idea: A Dialogue
In the urban setting, the screen would be a focal point in an urban environment, or perhaps a playground. On the farm (or production facility), the screen could be located in areas that reveal the effort and daily activities that are required to produce food. The 2-way broadcast is live, sort of like a Skype call or web cam. The sculpture sparks mutual interest and appreciation for the daily activities of vastly different lifestyles, and encourages serendipitous encounters.
