SinkTop - Mouse In The Kitchen Project
Advanced technology sometimes looks like joke.
SinkTop is a kitchen sink, embedded with a computer. In order to get water or control any other household appliances, you have to use mouse and monitor.
Technology brings our life a lot of changes. It is true that they are good in many aspects, but cannot be perfect. But they are always varnished with brilliant words, so we sometimes lose what the essence is. Even if you find that, it is impossible you to go against the tide.
In this work, mouse is a symbol of technology today. SinkTop express the human who is tossed about by the machines for technology.
