Thomas Hutton is a Master of Industrial and Strategic design graduate from Aalto University.He works for ThingLink, a web based service provider of image interaction tools.
ThingLink technology makes it possible to tag images with video, sound, social media content and links, for example. Images become a platform for rich media turning them from “flat surfaces” into objects of discovery and exploration. Working with image interaction technology has given Thomas a unique perspective on the value of images beyond the rudimentary.
For his blog, he will contemplate the influence images have in shaping our environment.
