Shrine 01 is a commentary on the rituals that govern our lives. We attempted to create a religious experience using a particle system, a stepper motor and a llama.
For our physical computing project, we developed a device for a user to have a ritualistic experience with technology. There is some irony built into this idea as many people already appear to have a set of rituals they perform everyday with their smartphones and computers. Unlike traditional shrines which typically don't provide an interactive experience, our shrine actively responds to the user giving feedback at each step as the user pays tribute to the forces that allow us to perceive, create, communicate and innovate.
