Thanks everyone whose enthusiasm has made “My Favorite Machine” such a huge hit. The art, produced initially for the BIG(D)ESIGN 2011 conference, has enjoyed a nice tour since then, being showcased in several different venues, each one a great location with wonderful audience attention. It’s been a blast getting to see the positive responses from different audiences. Follow the list of links below to photos and videos from many of these events and venues.
This multidimensional art piece celebrates the affection people have for a favorite object that serves them well and is particularly well designed. Of course, this is the Holy Grail for designers who aim to hit that sweet spot of making something that users love. I know it is for me anyway, being a software user interface designer myself for 20+ years. To get the whole run down on the thinking behind the art, check out my article on the BigDesign site.
