I need you to need me.

Elim Cheng

Everyone needs the feeling of being needed.

I want to arise the awareness that everyone needs to feel they've been needed, and it's ok to admit we're needy sometimes.

By doing that, I made two "needy objects", they need the owner's attentions to make them work. One is an alarm, to stop the alarm, the owner needs to hug it. Another one is a speaker, the volume will go crazy when the owner is not around. The owner needs to pet it to make it calms down.

Critical Design.
This project is inspired by the project "Placebo" by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Roby.
