HoloHalo: Speculative African holographic communication device

HoloHalo: Speculative African holographic communication device

Did you ever have one of those mood rings? Take a look at this creative conceptual project by digital artist Senongo Akpem.

HoloHalo is a holographic communication device that learns and adapts to you. Autonomously project colors and patterns that sync with your mood.

“First and foremost, to spark conversation and create new narratives. I have been a science fiction fan for as long as I have been able to read, but I have been an African for longer. It is almost comical how little we see Africans and people of color in Western speculative technology and sci-fi, so these types of projects are a deliberate attempt to challenge our erasure from what is essentially our own future.”

“HoloHalo is a holographic communication device that learns and adapts to you. Autonomously project colors and patterns that sync with your mood. I consider the speculative take on technology part of the world of Afro-futurism. I’m exploring a very specific idea, visualizing expressive communication through tech, and what that means (or could mean) for Africans and members of today’s African Diaspora.”
