Sensory Catcher

Project:The heuristic installation art - Sensory Catcher Role: Product Development,


Whenever we face doubts in life, what is most needed is to give self-inspiration through different ways to face the figurative or abstract issues and finally solve the problem. The heuristic installation art is just like a guide. Have you heard the water answer? Although the answer is still defined by yourself, your thoughts may have changed because of this conversation.



Any problem has a solution, not to think about things is not. ------------ Edison



Inspiration

This concept from my own experience, because of the expression of English, always feel depressed, the more frustration the more reluctant to take the initiative to communicate with people. In fact, we can change the angle, if we keep pets, communicate with each other there is no common language, but I believe we will still communicate smoothly, so I use water to refer to this form, water and human beings do not exist between the common language, But we can talk to each other, and the water can respond to you, that is to say we should pay attention to our relationship with the environment, some not smooth communication only because we are always concerned about our own limitations and ignore our possibilities.



Concept

Creation a full white space, suggesting that is a new environment, but also implies a new life, when they come into this space and face the only object is the white canvas which with three bottles of the water, so the user can connect to Bluetooth and use Siri say anything to the water. There is no same language but the water can respond to the user, that means no matter whatever languages but we can still communicate with each other. As for what does the "water" say, it depends on everyone's imagination.



The Perception space

The initial state of the mood is like a piece of white paper, so I make all of the project’s material with white color.

Material: plastic layers

Material application

About Water

We usually use water to describe people's emotions,

The water all over the world to give all things vitality, like selfless love. It is flowing with the shape of things, but also represents the wisdom.for me the water is good at transforming things, and it makes you think and keep calm.

In this project the water represents the language of the water, when the user using Siri say anything to the water,there is no same language But the water can

respond to the user, that means no matter whatever languages but we can still communicate with each other.

As for what does the "water" say, it depends on everyone's imagination.



After painting, the aesthetics of the design no longer make the project mechanized


User testing



Project in the exhibition


Connect your Bluetooth to(Sensory Catcher), and say anything using Siri to the water. The water will respond you.
