Machines That Will Destroy Us

Users expect machines to work in a certain way, and that results comply with the promise given by its creator.

Machines That Will Destroy Us are designed to do the opposite: they create a contradictory experience by using the conventions of familiar machines and social systems. The goal of these Machines is to challenge our expectations, and present an unexpected experience to the user. In this project, the artist himself is part of the system, and not simply an outsider judging others. The Machines create a sobering awareness of the trust we place in machines and systems.
