“The Modern Amulet is a collection of USB keys. It is part one of two concepts for Kopenhagen Fur’s competition; The Golden Fur Neadle. The project from Magnhild Disington’s MA project Deviated Evolution where she worked with the relationship between humans and their portable electronics, and the lack of emotional appeal these products provide. With The Modern Amulet she tried to balance the emotional value between the information we carry and the objects we use to carry them.”
Pointless fashion accessory? You might think the last thing you want to do to a computer chip is to keep it warm – but this makes a nice dongle for design conscious laptops and potentially quite an item for the glitterazi elite – without stirring a big animal rights lashback, I say this one is for the win.
