Surprise Me- Idea Generation 4Posted: March 14, 2014
Today we visited the center of Cardiff to analysis people and their habits, and how the asthma pump could be improved. This ethnographic research. We discussed the idea further and decided the asthma pump could be a piece of jewellery, a necklace being the most logical. Attached to this could be a QR code, this transports you to a website. The website being a photograph or video of the calming room.
The idea is to have a zoetrope in the middle of the room, to suggest something distracting, calming even hypnotic. I want this piece to challenge the exaggerate the availability of technology in our society. Along with this I want to recreate that image of a mind palace, and give this psychological state a physical aspect.
