Lernert Engelberts & Sander Plug
Lernert & Sander are two dutch artists and friends who decided that working alone was getting boring and started collaborating on art related projects. Since their first video Chocolate Bunny they’ve been working on commercials, leaders, art movies, documentaries and installations. Their aim is to make simple and communicative works, that takes little note of the existing border between contemporary art and commercial projects. Their highly esthetic, humorous and dedicated works are often challenging the media and its viewer, in a simple but very effective way. Their work was selected for international festivals in New York, Rio de Janeiro and Oberhausen.
PROCESS / FORMAT—Cast acrylic toilet seat impregnated with heat sensitive
thermochromic plastisol ink. Colour change threshold occurs at 36 degrees celcius.
SIZE—370mm X 360mm X 15mm
DATE—04 / 2003
PUBLICATION—Made and Sold, Design Diffusion News.
DESCRIPTION—Being able to identify a public toilet seat that has just been sat upon (and is thus still warm) is of particular concern to a significant number of the population. Without warning, one can easily sit upon a seat and be instantly repulsed by the trace evidence of a previous user. Conversely, if one is looking for intimate contact with an anonymous stranger without the associated awkwardness of verbal discourse, one could seek out the warm toilet seat. The decision to sit or not to sit is facilitated by the colour change of the seat: orange=cool, yellow=hot. The object retains the heat memory of a previous user and displays it as a visual marker for the next user to assess.

IE6ify is a clever little tongue-in-cheek jab at Internet Explorer 6 from an Australian based dutch web developer named ElbertF.
Add the link as a bookmark, and then on any web page start clicking it to “simulate” how the site would look in Internet Explorer 6.
Of course, it’s not an actual representation of how things would look, but its a clever idea and illustrates that you should definitely upgrade to the greatly improved Internet Explorer 8 or any of the other modern browsers such as Safari 4 or Firefox 3.5 if you are currently still using IE6.
