Expanding the Sound Poster series of design studio Trapped in Suburbia, the Shy Poster is the latest addition to its inquiry into new experiences with the traditional poster medium.
This time the poster gains personality by personifying shyness in an interactive installation. If the poster is left alone, its colourful inner character is revealed. However, if someone interrupts its personal comfort zone, the poster immediately retracts.
Providing the new visitor is patient and tactful, the Shy Poster will become comfortable and slowly reveal its true personality. Yet, you must be careful, because sudden movements – detected by motion sensors – can trigger the doors to slam shut.
