How to make an interactive experience that gets the reader closer to having a meaningful, enlightening, and memorable exchange with the physical world?
This Book is a Planetarium is my stab at answering that question. And it is finally out today! (-you can buy it at that link… or at your neighborhood bookstore… or amazon)
*this is my first project to be available both in Japan and at your local Wal-Mart (eeee!)
It’s a book of pop-up contraptions that you can actually use. I pared-down a few everyday tech objects to their bare minimums. Expanding out of the book’s pages, you’ll find: a stringed instrument, a perpetual calendar, a decoder ring, a spiralgraph drawing generator, a smartphone speaker, and a constellation-projecting planetarium. With a little tinkering, the resulting paper objects actually work (despite of being made from “almost nothing”)
