Fingis

Fingis are mushroom-like objects that can be plugged into devices to give them a little bit of intelligence. As more devices get connected, the Fingi network grows its collective intelligence about the humans it cohabits with, and over time, the Fingis modify devices around the home by imagining new uses based on the patterns they observe.

With the rise of digital assistants like Amazon Alexa and algorithms that control our social media news feed, artificial intelligence is becoming part of our everyday life, and is often part of a product as an invisible layer under its visible interface. The Fingis are an exploration of how we can begin to understand the things we live with when they learn about us and evolve constantly.
