<p class="big">Sisyphus is an absurd ergonomic simulation producing chairs.</p>
<p class="big">Ergonomic simulations are software used for evaluation in architectural and product design processes by imitating the average body of an end user. Body measurement databases define the shape and size of digital human models that are able to test comfort, assess safety and efficiency on virtual design prototypes. In the virtual space of the ergonomic simulation these avatars can outperform physical prototyping by being free of time and pain.</p>
<p class="big">Sisyphus subverts the ergonomic simulation process, in this case a seating material durability assessment, into a chair design method. The avatar’s data dictates the design process: By sitting on a cube for an extended period of time, the material deforms through the simulated body weight, pose and sitting time.</p>
<p class="big">To create a digital human model as stand in for a speculative future user, ergonomic simulation software is dependent on actual body data.</p>
<p class="big">Are these simulations ultimately defining and designing the human body by projecting an average user into the future?</p>
