Mark Selby creates speculative design prototypes that draw upon emotional relationships with technology.
For Territorial Play he has developed prototype camera, Camera Explora, that uses photography as tool for exploration. Each camera comes with a map of a city to which the camera is configured, and allows one photo for each grid square on the map. When that photograph has been taken the camera is disabled until the next square is reached.
Meanwhile, back in the gallery, machines plot our photographers’ routes through the city. Later, the drawings are overlaid onto the map, and the photos taken are printed and labelled with their corresponding grid reference.
