Apple x Goldsmiths
This collaborative project was a response to a community-oriented brief set by Apple. We explored the culture of discarded objects in the area of New Cross where people often leave unwanted items in their front yards. We imagined the concept of Thing Power as a measure of the value of an object being used as currency within the open 'shop-like' landscape of New Cross. Our design outcome was the Thing Tag which allowed for the objects history to be documented. Additionally we prototyped a website to function as an archive of the objects while also mapping their 'travel' around New Cross.
