Haha, you have to give designer Tomomi Sayuda credit for having a great sense of humour. She introduces her design the iBum with the following quote: "The arse is the window of the soul." We love it...a photocopier installed into a modern style chair that captures your posterior for posterity. A video of it in action below...
I believe that human buttocks are one of the less discussed and focused part of human body. In this “iBum” project, I would like to reveal the visual of this less popular part of body without notice. The chair reveal human unconsciousness and reality. When audience sit down on the chair, a scanner on the top of chair start to scan people`s buttocks automatically. Then the scanned image is printed out from the right hand side of the chair. A sensor is detecting people`s existence all the time. So people will not realize the existence of the scanner. Without notice, the photocopy of the bum will arrive next to the chair.
Tomomi Sayuda further explains her project in detail, including inspiration (you'll chuckle) and details about prototype models in her 5 step process description. Can we look into having Sayuda mail out one of these for every Perez Hilton celeb fodder to insure they leave the house wearing underwear?
