Created by automato, Politics of Power are speculative objects/devices/fictional artefacts that question political and social implications of network ownership/control using ideology driven distribution of electrical power as an analogy.
Created by Quadrature, Kartograph is a drawing machine that updates old maps by drawing new geographic data over the infrastructure of old times using the internet.
Created by Philipp Schmitt, Camera Restricta is a camera that locates itself via GPS and searches online for photos that have been geotagged nearby. If the camera decides that too many photos have been taken at your location, it retracts the shutter and blocks the viewfinder. You can’t take any more pictures here.
Created as a collaboration between Mediated Matter Group (MIT Media Lab) and the Glass Lab (MIT), GLASS G3DP is a additive manufacturing process that enables 3d printing of optically transparent glass that also allows tunability by geometrical and optical variation that drives form, transparency, color variation, reflection and refraction in all things glass.
A 2,000 lb machine that uses 6,400 mechanical spools of thread to display Instagrams is the latest project by NY based collaborative BREAKFAST. The team are streaming live online 24 hours a day from July 22-28th, and users receive an auto-edited video of their Instagrams being displayed on the screen.

Developed at the MIT Media Lab’s Mediated Matter group, Living Mushtari is a 3D printed wearable with 58 meters of internal fluid channels designed to function as a wearable microbial factory that uses synthetic microorganisms to convert sunlight into useful products for the wearer.
Created by Verena Friedrich, Vanitas Machine explores the desire for eternal life and the potential of life-prolonging measures. Vanitas Machine is comprised of a candle placed in the centre of glass which protects it from environmental factors and controls it’s lifespan by regulating the oxygen supply.
Created by Robb Godshaw and Max Hawkins, Smaller & Upside Down is a collection of custom designed 3D-printed lenses, each custom-designed and fabricated using a new rapid prototyping process.
Mattia Casalegno (multifaceted Italian artist based in Los Angeles, 1981) takes inspiration from disciplines such as anthropology, biology, ecology, and neurosciences, deploying a vast array of technologies and expressive forms, with a natural inclination for new media languages.
Cardboard construction kit and a framework for rapid machine prototyping developed at the MIT Media Lab, part of ‘How to Make Something that Makes (almost) Anything’ course.
Created by Simone Rebaudengo & Matthieu Cherubini, Ethical Things is a project that explores the effects of autonomous systems of the future, speculating what happens to the mundane and insignificant objects we rely on every day.
