An exploration in expressing the emotion hopelessness within a series of body objects.
In a series of body objects, this project aims to discover the specific emotion of hopelessness through the physical sensation of gravity. The project is investigating a femininity concept by exploring the emotions evoked when reading about the myth of Pandora and how she is used in academic reports such as Diseases of Women to argue upon discriminating arguments directed towards a female identity.
The outcome of the workshops situates this project in a participatory driven field where somatic experiences make it possible to discuss sensitive topics such as hopelessness and gender equality. The outcome of the project is five sensorial body objects that suggest possibilities in designing wear to trigger emotions.
