As our everyday social and cultural experiences are increasingly mediated by electronic products – from ‘intelligent’ toasters to iPods – it is the design of these products that shapes our experience of the ‘electrosphere’ in which we live. Designers of electronic products, writes Anthony Dunne in ‘Hertzian tales’, must begin to think more broadly about the aesthetic role of electronic products in everyday life. Industrial design has the potential to enrich our daily lives – to improve the quality of our relationship to the artificial environment of technology, and even, argues Dunne, to be subverted for socially beneficial ends.The cultural speculations and conceptual design proposals in ‘Hertzian tales’ are not utopian visions or blueprints; instead, they embody a critique of present-day practices, ‘mixing criticism with optimism’. Six essays explore design approaches for developing the aesthetic potential of electronic products outside a commercial context – considering such topics as the post-optimal object and the aesthetics of user-unfriendliness – and five proposals offer commentary in the form of objects, videos, and images.
