12 Me - An Interactive Art Installation
An Interactive Art Installation exploring our perception and mood. The installation is a part of college projects
We perceive the world differently. The meaning we take out from our surroundings is subjected to our perception. This perception is highly affected by our emotional State (Mood) in that space & time and decisions we make in that context (our judgments) are dominated by our emotional state. That being said, our mood is triggered by a stimulus. The sound is a strong stimulus which can induce a certain mood into a person.
’12 me’ explores the way we understand and comprehend the world. Our perception depends on mood and mood can be altered by a sound. The Installation leads to the realization and makes us conscious of the influence of mood in our daily life. It appreciates the world perceived reside only in our mind.
Based on the “Circumflex model of affect” with arousal and valence dimension adapted from James Russell, I have chosen 12 different moods. A playback of my voice is played depicting the 12 different moods chosen. Moods are mapped to lenses having different optics. As we pick up the lens to see through it, audio is played in the headphones.
