Description

I believe that common life experiences and emotional similarities are the most universal communicative languages for human beings, no matter how far they are apart. In my thesis, I use doors as a daily interface with abundant history and imagination to build a physical installation. The audience can interact with the piece based on their own intuition and memory to discover a new interpretation of human connection. To let viewers experience this system naturally as they are contributing to the event, I take advantage of human collective memory embedded in daily physical objects to design a self-driving journey.

My thesis is also a reflection of ideal social interaction. I hope that through viewing my project, people will have more awareness of the importance of social equality and empathy.
