Value for Money / 2008
“Money is how people set a number
- David Packouz￼
A project for Intel exploring the future of money and the effects of e-money on our lives. I wondered how the way you spent money might reflect what you value in life.
Electronic money allows flows of money to be enhanced with extra layers of data and therefore meaning. With a set of bank cards linked to your account you could categorize your spending in categories like Survival, Instant Pleasure, Self-Expression and Self-Development. Over time this turns your bank statements into an in-depth analysis of your personal values, needs and desires.
'Vita' is a mail order catalogue that uses this analysis to offer you a wide selection of detailed lifestyles. They come with preselected products, services and activities and a monthly rate. Shop lifestyles until you find one that mentally and financially fits you.
