The communication presented through this wearable project is not intended to be “intelligent” or “smart”; it is simple and straightforward. The wearable has a personality not because it is highly intelligent; it is because of its simplicity. Can machine communication advance beyond human communication due to such simplicity? It seems we can see more intelligence in such simplicity compared to our sophisticated human nature.
Instead of looking at interaction in terms of its effectiveness and optimization, this project recognizing the absence of emotional engagement in current interaction design.
I tried to re-conceptualize the interaction process in a way that addresses uncertainty, complexity and the ambiguity of our human nature.
The emotional meaning can be communicated in a complex process, which delivers the meaning accurately on an emotional level while creating a playful ambiguous space for audiences to have different interpretations, to engage, to control and play with.
By covering your ears or mouth, is it an expression of modesty and humbleness? Or it is egoism and arrogance?
