Appliance Street Gangs is an experiment in expression.
How does your microwave make you feel? Not an easy question to answer. What kind of personality does your fridge have? Wah? Yep pretty strange question. How about abstractly thinking about your home appliances as a street gang and visually creating a collage to represent that?
The goal of this project was to explore the usage of Polyvore and Mechanical Turk for getting consumers to create a visual language representation of something that is typically hard to emote a notion of feeling around... your fridge.
The test was quick hit done in just 6 hours using Mechanical Turk. A bit of data gives us a unique view into the world of 10 Appliance Street Gangs.. enjoy.
