WHAT IT SHOWS: an installation presents a library of smart bioplastics that give objects a “voice” to communicate with us, by converting chemical inputs into human senses – changing color, odor, and form in response to fluids. Artifacts made from the materials act as information displays which provide a glimpse into a new material reality, a world where everyday objects mediate the ecological signals they’re part of, and come to life to communicate with their owners.
