Rebecca Tennenbaum - Every Thing Has a Function

  • NAPOLEON 319 North 11th Street _ Floor 2, 19107 (map)


What is gained by interfacing with an extension of yourself? What do you get from staring into a two-way mirror knowing you are also on the other side? Everything Has a Function is a show title and a description. Rebecca Tennenbaum imagines a showroom of speculative smart devices she rebrands as “Conscious Objects” focused solely on the betterment of the self, not of the business. Imagine, for example, if Alexa was held to APA standards. There’s a mouth guard that measures nightly grind patterns and uses the data to make you more honest with yourself in your waking life, a machine that weighs the outcomes of life decisions using simple visual symmetry, and an air filter that detects and freshens unresolved social interactions.
