Drück den Like-Button!

"Like This", 2011

Dieser Like-Button ist ein Projekt von Mario Klingemann, der basierend auf einer Arduino-Platine eine Möglichkeit geschaffen hat, das physikalische Drücken eines Like-Buttons zu ermöglichen, inklusive Hochzählen der Anzahl der Likes. Mario Klingemann erläutert die Idee wie folgt:

It is not connected to Facebook since for obvious reasons it is not possible to register a “like” for another person without being logged in. Only the button design has been borrowed since it is such a cultural icon already and most people will immediately understand how to use it.
Technically it contains an Arduino which takes care for permanently storing the count of button presses (so they do not get lost when the power is detached) and which also controls the display. Also what cannot be seen on the still photo is that you have to press the button for about a second during which a progress bar appears in order for your “Like” to count – so people who do not like it but still want to touch it can do so.
The idea was to create a self-referential artwork that shows how many people like it. Apart from that I find it interesting to have an object in a gallery or show that is not only allowed to be touched but actually supposed to be.

Ich glaube, wenn man einen derartigen Button wirklich bei einem Restaurant oder einem Laden anbringen würde, die zufriedenen Kunden würden den Knopf drücken und davon ausgehen, daß sie damit ihre Meinung auch bei Facebook zum Ausdruck bringen.
