    Clapper
    Project: Design Media Arts at UCLA


    The Clapper is an old high-tech device. It is just one demonstration of human's infinite desire to control. This may sound exagerrating but I think it is valid.

    "let you turn things on and off from anywhere in the room, just plug in the clapper and use television, lamp, stereo, almost anything you want to turn on and off."

    Anything? what about gravity.

    Human's relationship with nature has long been revolving around controlling the nature. Be that the food chain, the weather, the landscape... if man are leaving earth for a new home, a space colony, what are we going to control? is there still nature? Before we realize it, our power has allowed us to control more things than we think we could.

    We must reestimate our power.
