Abstract [en]

Is there possibly a way design can make us reflect upon and acknowledge multiple realities?

Our perceptions are so individually rooted that we can practically say that we experience multiple realities. Depending on which senses we use and what previous experiences we have, we explore our physical world in such a way that one could say that it’s a reality of it’s own.

By exposing ourselves to multiple realities we not only learn more, we also diminish our generalisations within that field.

Through the objects presented in the project, I question how aesthetics and functionality can stimulate new views and experiences, opening up how we perceive the world in different ways. Thus giving us different associations of what objects come to mean to each and everyone - our subjective reality.

The project resulted in three proposals which are related to the private home, but has been given a costume of ambiguity to connect with viewers and users on a more individual plane.

Who do you see in the mirror? Is it a table, or is it actually an instrument? Does our previous experiences reveal in how we interact with objects?
