research and exhibition at MIT 2011
December 9th, 2011


Caleb Benjamin Harper, Ali Khalid Qureshi, Summer Stephanie Sutton, students of ACT course Introduction to Networked Cultures and Participatory Media presented their collaborative project  iHuman for the Boston chapter of the Disobedience exhibition.

iHuman is a platform for anonymous manipulation of the physical environment. Our avatar has the capacity to walk, touch and engage in any global environment. By reconfiguring the FaceTime platform, along with the development of a prosthetic apparatus, iHuman hopes to re-conceive and expand the affordance of an existing technology.

The art piece allows users to experience physical environments in a manner which has previously been inconceivable. By allowing the controller to be both anonymous and remote, communication is no longer bound by moral/ethical or social constraints.
