Overview: Ephemeris, nano filaments that adapt over time and feelings.
What’s This: In the year 2024, 24 earthlings will settle on Mars as part of a mission called MARS ONE. Life in a reconstituted eco-sphere, a limited and slight area is closer than we think. The concept of “home” will radically change. Between intimacy and community life, relations will change. Changes of mood and humor will have a bigger impact for each other. Could air counter-balance space sickness ? Could scents in the way of Madeleine de Proust allow to respond to a state of soul and spirit ? The device consists of the interaction between a sensor of emotion particular to the consumer, and an object generating space in response to it. During the use of this device, the emotional data is read and activates the deployment of nano filaments. It cleans the air as the consumer comes through. Thanks to the friction and the electromagnetism of filaments, the consumer is physically washed while the dissemination of scents through the filaments soothes the psyche.
The Push:The device integrated into a living space can be seen as an aside in a day. Consumer can relax and reach the notion of pleasure within a few minutes through this new space. The device is present but discreet, evolutionary and activated only in the goodwill of the consumer. Senses are disturbed, smell is tested and touched. Feelings of “déjà vu” will be initiated by the experiment, a daily ritual such as daily grooming: washing one’s troubles away.
