Declarations of Interdependence (Essay)

 

"Declarations of Interdependence" is a series of interactive prototypes that reposition individual and collective roles. Prototypes include:

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, i.e. 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 in the group.

Through this series of designed experiences, Declarations of Interdependence questions the centrality of the individual user in the interfaces and interactions of contemporary social media and human-computer interfaces.
