iShaker (2006)

The iPod is more than just an MP3 player; it’s a cult object, fashion phenomenon and expression of a person's attitude towards life. Nevertheless, its memory capacity is getting bigger and bigger, and its content, in turn, ever more trivial. The iPod has become the instrument of compulsive collectors, the object of choice of those torn between an unfulfilled freedom of choice and an inability to make a choice. But what if the iPod could activate people? To take action. To make decisions. To be creative. Don't just play back music; creating music together is our motto! We make music! With the iPod. Any form of movement is welcome. And we thus come full circle: the iShaker becomes the “I shaker.”
