Fundamentals of Physical Computing
WITH RITWIK DESCHAPANDE AND SHANE STRASSBERG
Rituals are physical representations of beliefs. They give tangible form to abstract ideas. Shrines is an attempt to create a ritual based on the ideas that we, as designers,enshrine. It's an installation that aims to symbolize everything we believe in and codify it into an incantation. Unlike traditional rituals in which the entity that's being prayed to is physically absent, the Shrine of Shrines will actively respond to the worshipper, giving live feedback at each step, unfurling as the worshipper pays tribute to the forces that allow us to perceive, create, communicate and innovate.
