Uncanny Transformation: Familiar Futures
exploring our cultural understanding of home
Referencing the uncanny, various aspects of a traditional domestic interior have been manipulated in direct contrast to stereotypical homes of the future (think purely utilitarian spaces, white, functional and interactive). The design outcomes are wide and varied and explore elements of sensory and problem solving design, ranging from chocolate switches and flocked tiles to photographic Trompe L'oeil wallpapers and electromagnetic sheilding materials. All of these elements work together to challenge our perceptions of this familiar environment and our relationship with it.
