Information Decoration for Dummies

Van Mensvoort
April 2nd 2007

With this cooking timer gadget, you can explain information decoration to anyone. In addition to its default explicit digital time display, it has a modus in which the passing of time can be displayed implicitly with the number of blocks piled at the bottom. Making it more like a sandglass (with that natural analog feeling). Yes, it would have been even better if the decorative function was integrated in the stove.

Of course it would have been an even better example of infodeco if the gadget was integrated in the architecture of the kitchen... but i understand this is difficult, being a gadget and all..

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
