The human mind and our emotions are one of the most ambiguous and mysterious things in the world. Art is the expression of human imagination and creativity in a visual from that has existed for as long as time. For this project, I aim to combine these two areas, to turn the intangible into the tangible, by translating emotions into a physical representation that can enjoyed by many. This project focuses on the following:
Nostalgia: “A longing to return to an earlier period or condition of life recalled as being better than the present in some way.”
Sonder: “The realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.”
Onism: “The frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time.”
These three emotions are centered by the common theme of time. Nostalgia represents the past, sonder represents the present, and onism represents the future. Through this project, I hope to utilize my art and design skills I learned from DCC to express my own perspectives on these emotions and to allow viewers to come up with their own interpretations as well.
