Graphic Design Festival Breda (GDFB) asked me to develop a machine that they could use during a school program to educate children about graphic design. Children are already used with graphic design from an early age. In school every child has their own coat hanger with a pictogram of a beachball, palmtree, penguin, etc….
I build a wearable machine to tour around different schools where children could make there their own icon design to use for instance on the coat hanger. By pressing the green button on the Pictomachine they approve the picture/changes. By sliding the RGB sliders they can change the color of the drawing. With the print button the icon wat printed in different sizes on a sticker sheet.
It is amazing to see that every single kid is blown away by the “magic” of the installation.
Considered that they probably know the ins and outs of a Smartphone/Tablet better than their parents
