My final project inspiration came from my p-comp mid-term project and personal experiences. My mid-term project’s idea was to utilize sound to evaluate one’s pressure. After mid-term, I’ve made up my mind that I want to do something related to emotion for my final project.
As a consequence, I started to dig out deeply from myself. I am a very rational person. I rarely lost the control of everything in my life. However, when I feel desperately stressful and upset due to the urgent accident or crazy schedules and deadlines, my mind would shut down, and I could barely do anything like a paralyzed soldier. Under this circumstance, I would stop doing anything and write down my thoughts, worries, and the reasons why I felt the extremely negative feelings. After I talked to my notebook or a piece of random paper, I felt relieved, and I could start to organize my mind again.
After half of a year later, when I saw my worries and thought again, the emotion has converted from negative to positive feeling. It’s interesting and worthwhile to ruminate when seeing the negative thought generated by yourself past. The scenario is like: Why this circumstance trapped me so bad a year ago? Can I cope with the emotion again when dealing with the same situation?
As a result, I want to transform this interaction with myself to a physical interaction device. I want to create a device or installation that is very approachable. You can tell all your secrets to the invention, and it will “listen” and help you store your worries and thoughts. The device will upload your thoughts to the computer, and you can set the date you want to listen to it again. In a nutshell, this is a “time capsule” of your emotions.
