The Eraser by Shawn Soh and Persiis Hajiyanni — London, UK
Shawn Soh and Persiis Hajiyanni recently made a piece for The DELETE Show in London titled The Eraser. They created a piece that illustrates the movement of time – that the present is always moving forward – and Snapchat was the main source for his inspiration. "Expiration dates ask us to reflect on the value of information by showing the movement of time." Together with the help of Ryan Smaglik, an electronic engineer, Shawn Soh created an interactive analog Snapchat with an Arduino, thermal printer and hair straightener.
