(Un)Comfortable

With project (Un)Comfortable I have researched how the pressure that young adults experience could be lowered. From different researches I concluded that about 28.3% of the young adults experiences a lot of pressure and the associated difficulties. I have designed tools that can create and optimize moments of rest. By wearing or cuddling these objects, they give you a warm and protective feeling that stimulates the production of the hormone oxytocin. Oxytocin creates a positive feeling to your body that can temporarily release the pressure you experience. With my series of tools I create comfortable solutions for uncomfortable feelings.

DRIPS.

All thoughts you have go together with emotions and feelings. In this project I've decided to research and visualize this. I chosen to use bottles to visualize the core of these emotions. They represent the form of the human body and refer to the human body because we consist for 70% out of water. The drips are the expressions of these emotions. I used drips as a visualization because emotions are ever present, they only change in strength. It comes in waves just like the tide. The form not only refers to feelings and their expressions but also to fluid organic movements, humanity and things of constant change just like all moments of life itself. It is a carrier and a visualization of a certain heaviness.

CAPTURED CORNERS & CONSTRUCTIONS

An ongoing photography project about my love for details. I capture combinations of color, structures and compositions.
