Smart Objects presents Unhide, an exhibition of works by Conor Backman, Adam Cruces, Chadwick Gibson, Friedemann Heckel, Alexis Indris, Sara Ludy, Ariane Schick, Pascual Sisto, and Michael Stasis.
As we move awkwardly towards a more symbiotic relationship with technology, new user interfaces must be designed. Due to an increasing dependency on our devices and the quest for a more seamless user experience, tech companies are racing to define the new UI landscape.
The works in Unhide consider different aspects of the contemporary mediated experience. Some function as formal compositions that allude to potential interfaces. Others work as metaphors that gesture towards a more featureless, harmonious form for tomorrow’s UI. Combined, the works provide the means for one to picture what is an ambiguous approaching reality.
