AN INVITE FOR SLOW MOTION
We live fast times, leading a fast life and dealing with the inability to retain the huge multiplicity of images that are presented to us on a daily basis. But sometimes we have to stop. Breathe. Devote our time to the permanence of memory. To live slowly. To view slowly. To flip through images in the same way we read a great book and get involved within the story. To handle images in a physical form and let them build some space inside us.
An analogical version of the digital frame.
KODAK is an analogical photo frame that defies the logic of the digital empire, it's also a tribute to the historical photographic film company.
With a double function of being both a frame and an album, the piece praises simplicity and enhances physical contact with the images and the object itself. The box, made in birch solid wood with a glass cover, can hold more than 100 photographs in 20x15 format, and invites people to handle it without fear or complex.
On the back of the box, an unexpected round hole allows using your finger to remove the photos inside and view them one by one, alone or with friends, and choose a new image to stay on top. KODAK is made to be still over table or a shelf, laid down horizontally, as if to let the images stand and grow their own body and soul.
Made 100% in certified wood, manufactured by SPSS.
A 'Remade in Portugal 2014' product.
