This model is the product of the observed patterns and rhythms characteristic of dog-walking.
The goal of this intervention is to connect the user to his/her environment through random stops which direct attention to the world of ubiquitous urban objects.
The result is an umbrella called Sticky.
With a magnetic tail/paw, Sticky grabs metal objects as they are passed by on the street, including fences, parking meters and other umbrellas.
Sticky works in a way that is analogous to the interactions between dogs and their owners. In this case, the ubiquitous urban object, the umbrella, is transformed to endow it with attractive tendencies with respect to other ubiquitous urban objects.
The user takes the umbrella out for a walk, transforming the object into a kind of pet, whose disruptive behavior brings it to life.
