red bull canvas cooler
2018
this canvas cooler™ is an artificially intelligent, self-aware, refrigeration device concept.

its advanced computerbrain is capable of simulating a range of moods and emotions, such as: happiness, sadness, anger, annoyance etc. like humans, it has good days and bad days. it knows what (and who) it likes and dislikes. and is smart enough to engage in small talk.

however, the main function of this appliance is to motivate its user to be more productive. it does this by communicating positive messages. and encouraging the user to fully accomplish their tasks, with the aid of energy drinks.

made for a two day residency in karachi, pakistan. the task was to design the canvas cooler, exploring the theme of metamorphosis. the residency was followed by an exhibition.
