Bakedbits    
  


:: the thesis projects in exhibitions

The Bakedbits were considerably successful in exhibitions and people enjoyed the objects for different reasons, for different interpretations. The practice made me understand that what seemed to be a problem become one of the most important features, the richness in meanings. Some examples: one girl that saw the radio made of chocolate said “Oh! This radio is great for a girl that need to do a diet and must control herself!”; or a guy that said “The Paneluce would be perfect as a luminary for that super cool bakeries in Milan”.

The Mobile.seed prototyping were mainly based on video scenarios and in objects to represent the look and feel, not the functionality. Many biodegradable materials were tested, but with secondary relevance. The objects themselves were not self-explanatory, and the videos were not didactic, but focused in the mood of use. But when presented all this material together, the reaction of the public was very positive, understanding the potential and the contrast with other more traditional ideas.
