Jordi Parra's Spotify Box (shown below), works under similar principles. Magnetic tags linked to playlists on Spotify, are placed on the circular region at the front of the device which then executes the playlist. One can label or draw on these tags much like with CDs and tape recordings. “This gives an analog quality to the interactions with digital music.” (Charlier, 2015) By giving physical representation to digital elements, these technologies make everyday experiences more direct and memorable.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
