We recently featured Maiko Takeda's shadow jewelry here. The pieces felt genuinely innovative particularly because there is no reason they could not have existed centuries ago but for the idea. These works by panGenerator are more of their time existing at the edge of current technology. They rely on the use of portable computation and projection devices and owe their interactivity to tools now carried on any smartphone. Given the apparently endless information harvesting and monetization that drives wearable tech developement, it is great to see something concerned primarily with aesthetics and experience. There is no question the sophistication of our tools advances far faster than our judgment in their use. These "pieces" offer an elegant pause in the rapacious sprint toward abject cyber-slavery. Perhaps they also offer a combination of delight and behavioral involvement which proposes a richer way to deploy our machines.
