Anthropometric was part of Ubiquitous Futures at CATCH and as part of Click Festival. In the past, one might consult an oracle, a wizard or a fortune-teller in hopes of learning one’s fate. Now we have health-trackers and digital testing devices to divine our biological destiny.


Vanessa Julia Carpenter, Sarah Homewood and Rosemary Lee created Anthropometric, a conceptual future device which would measure the breath and provide a readout of your health. This device was not specific, but rather, something you would consult, like an oracle, which would help you to guide your own decisions about your health and actions you might need to take.
