Bubblo Picasso, 2019.
Parents often think about and miss their babies while at work. Bubblo Picasso attempts to demonstrate a responsiveness to parental and familial anxieties about not spending enough time with their children. It augments a standard baby walker and uses a Leap Motion Controller to read in the baby’s hand motions. As the baby walks around the house, an interface converts the baby’s hand movements to art that their parents and family members can remotely view in real time from a website, save and upload to their social media. While the baby is walking, the song Baby Shark is played and bubbles are released beneath the walker into the baby’s field of vision. This encourages the baby to pop the bubbles and dance to the music to create digital art. Bubblo Picasso structures an interaction between parents and infants, predicated on feelings of nostalgia, memory, and parental achievement across spatial distance.
