Emotion

In my project I want to
pursue ultimate interaction between human and machine by using artwork.

I think to have "ultimate interaction," we need to understand relationships.
Such relationships between people, "people and machine," or "people and things". I think you can say that
relationships depend on people or "people and their counterparts". In my project I want to
pursue ultimate interaction between human and machine by using artwork.


Background
Affection
http://itp.nyu.edu/~jsl398/affection/

Audience
Everyone large or small

User Scenario
I want to give this artwork a sense of awareness like human beings such as
jealousy, angry, sad, pleasure, and lonely.

I'm going to portray the awareness emotions for the individual flowers
by certain expressive characteristics when I approach
them. When I approach one of them, it will opens the leaves beautifully(affection/joyous), but at
the same time, rest of the flowers will reacts differently by blinking(angry),
making noise(jealous), and dimming light(sad) something like that...

It's like human instinct delivered in artwork.
I would like to grow my flowers, and as they mature, I would like for my artwork to be able to portray more emotions

Implementation
plastic mirror (expression water, reflection of emotion), translucent plastic (expression for
water lily's leaves), woven fiber optic panels (water lily flower),
tri-colored led (variety of colors or subtle color),
servo-motor (movement_open and close the leaves)
IR-sensor (detect approach), touch sensor (?), PWM extension (digital
potentiometer)
Max/MSP, Processing

Conclusion
Realization through artwork
Observation from my surroundings
Reflection of myself or others from the artwork
Inspiration through artwork
