Blu is the second in a series of short film about the feeding ritual of my Corgi Toshiro. The first short is a playful and lighthearted telling of this daily ritual through the eyes of the dog himself. This short, however, is a design fiction which was meant to open up dialogue on smart home integration with social media. The short explores a world where the ubiquity of IoT allows for further inundation of social media, self absorption, and a lost sense of connection. It explores the beneficial convenience of such connected devices, and leaves the viewer thinking about the costs and trade-offs of those benefits.
This was a collaboration between Grace Budget, Faezah Shaharuddin, and myself.
