We are nearing the end of the ‘find’ stage of our project. Using the previously mentioned strands of thought we have come up with 90 initial ideas that we are looking at in more depth. It is at this stage we must begin to decide what direction we see ourselves going in. Our aim as a group has always been to create a meaningful interaction from the connection between emotion and sound. Now we must ask ourselves how we wish to achieve this.
Can sounds help us to remember just as much as text? Can we create a musical diary for your life experiences? Can the natural differences between us, such as fingerprints, create an audio profile to be shared? Can household objects be personified to create an emotional connection? Can we take the most personal words we speak and craft something physical?
These are just some of the thoughts we are thinking of developing into concepts.
