BLIND TO ADVERTS? I'VE GOT THE BLINDS FOR YOU
PROTOTYPE DESIGN FOR MOTORISED BLINDS
SHIFT RESIDENCY JUNE 2019
This prototype design for motorised blinds can reveal and conceal adverts in the public space, which we have no choice in seeing. Using a stepper motor, aurdino system, battery pack and 2 cogs, the mechanism can roll the blinds up and down using the cord. The prototype explores the idea of disobedient objects, causing mischief amongst corporate public advertising and capitalist agendas. It allows you to take control over city branding and gives an opportunity to have a say in what you want to see. Thanks to Aiden Taylor for help with the Electronics.
