Goodnight & Night – A Fictitious Commodity of Conceptual Art

Abstract

《Goodnight&night》is an art creation using FLOSS., combining open source with space exhibition. The core of 《Goodnight&night》is an explosive cell phone cover, made using open source and 3D printing. We create this fictitious commodity to construct of this behavior conceptual art. The concept of《Goodnight&night》originates from the prevalence and rapid development of mobile internet and handheld devices, how it has changed the way people life and the negative impact it has brought. In the beginning, people hoped that such technology would bring a more convenient and better life; we can interact with others anytime and anywhere, to share with others and to solve problems together. But at the same time, our lives begin to be disrupted by the immediacy of information. Senders of information usually do not take into consideration the status of the recipient at the time the information is sent. This brings a great amount of pressure and disturbance to our lives, and yet we cannot help but become addicted to our mobile devices, and have no solution to improve the situation. Therefore we came up with the idea of the explosive cell phone cover. We believe that only through such violent treatment can we be free of the restriction and conditioning by cell phones. We also hope that after the violent explosion, everything will return to calmness, and we can retrieve the peace and beauty of days past. This is a problem troubling many people, but since not very many of them would be willing to blow up
