ESCAPING CHAIR: Takeshi Oozu (JP) – EMPOWERMENT INFORMATICS, UNIVERSITY OF TSUKUBA

The Escaping Chair is a furniture-shaped device that tries to escape from nearby people in order to prevent the subject from sitting down. Although this device is a machine with a simple function, without any will, we expect that the user feels a semblance of will in the device through their interaction with it, and treats it as another “person.”
