To imagine low-tech tools for basic human, sapien survivalism.
Despite all kinds of advancement in AI and modern human-robot ineraction, this set of low-tech, unweildly tools (or the elements that form the encyclopedia of survivalism) become the only channel of communcation with the external world. They are conceived through the imaginative, childish curiosity of ‘what would you do if you were all alone on an island’?
This is the Encyclopedia of Survivalism.
Four objects: the Meta Ear Drum, The Gene Carrier, BioNostril and LifeSensor are speculative objects for an inter-species understanding. The biology of living organisms- from bacteria to butterflies- is embedded in each of these devices through a biotechnology & biomimicry.
