Please Seat Yourself is a family of designed interactive objects that playfully invite the user to discover joy, connection and mindfulness through a new way of experiencing the familiar. The objects consist of common wooden chairs that have been painted and cast into textured cement bases with curved bottoms. Due to the base, the normally straightforward experience of sitting in a chair is shifted and the body becomes activated by movement. In this work, the use of common chairs is a reference to the ordinariness of everyday life and concrete represents the parts of life that are weighing us down. By subverting the function of these common materials, the chair and the concrete, I can transform them from something mundane to magical, bringing about a great deal of surprise in the process. The playful interaction with each object acts as a metaphorical invitation to choose to find joy in the everyday world as we know it.
