DESIGN NAME:
Panic Hope Despair Death

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Interactive Installation

INSPIRATION:
My father passed away one year ago, which gave me the inspiration to do the piece. When my father was examined and diagnosed with cancer, he experienced the four stages of grief: “panic, hope, despair, and death.” When my father found out he had cancer, first, he feared about everything such as time, family, money and so on. He was panicked about everything. During the second stage, he started to feel hope after he got chemo- therapy. However, chemical therapy did not cure cancer all the way. My father conceived the feeling of despair. After feeling despair, he stopped taking medicine for a while. Then, he passed away. My father suffered through the four stages for two years, which inspired me to make the art work in order to memorialize my father. I wanted to make an installation that dramatizes the emotions from diagnosis, to sickness to death.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is an interactive installation comprised of four stages of emotions – Panic, Hope, Despair,Death. My visual imagination is based on my life experience when my father passed away in 2010 because of cancer. A patient’s bed lets viewers go though the four stages of emotions and arouse memories of those who have passed in their own lives.My goal is to bring visitors to these four stages as my father and I went through before. I was involved in my father’ four stages of emotions for two years, which like a cycle influence my spiritual and physical situation.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
When the viewers see the hospital tools, they can associate and put themselves into the hospital scene. Then there are four different parts of videos, which are projected on the patient bed when the viewer approaches to the patient bed. A sensor can detect the viewers’ locations to show videos and sounds. The interaction around the patient bed tells a story with a sense of life from sickness to death. The four mirrors strengthen their memories when they see their portraits on the mirrors. The self-portraits in the mirrors help the viewers connect their own experience in their daily life or to think about the question of death. At the same time, the viewers experience my father’s and my experience, which are reflected to their own occurrence. Then, they can put their own memories into these empty objects that are filled with their memories. Finally, the quote brings the viewers to think about where the souls go.

The project open from Mar 6 - Mar 9 at Pratt Gallery, NY

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Anthony Gromley I am inspired by Athony Gromley’s human form, which he creates with different materials. His concept is to treat the body not as an object but a place to recreate an art space with different materials. He uses wood, iron, and paper, and forms them into shapes, which could be recognized as abstract human forms. I can conceive the emotions from poses and gestures of these human forms. The inspiration from his work that I will apply to my thesis is that I will develop the shape of a human by using the fabric covers on the hospital bed. The more abstract the form, the more subtle emotions the viewers will perceive(Gormley1)

CHALLENGE:
I do everything for the project, and the challenging part is projection mapping and coding.
