/ You Are Hear
We created an experience that enabled reflection, reminding and reassurance. Based around silence, thought, writing and a reel to reel tape deck, the experience allowed the participants in it to hear themselves. A space and time to think with intent about what makes them, them and who they aspire to be.
This project was done in collaboration with Cameron Coupe.
Prompted actions led the participants to load & turn on the reel to reel machine. The tape provided would play silence for ten minutes. This silence was "filled" with the writings of each of the ten participants.
We often think about who we are or who we hope to be, but rarely make a focused effort to put these feelings, goals, dreams & hopes into words. Although prompted, each session was essentially a free write. Perfect grammar, linear thought, and refined content was never the goal. Each write lasted 10 minutes.
Describe The Person You Hope To Become.
While our group of participants was solely upperclassman in college, our audience was everyone. Regardless of who you are, where you've been, or where you're going, moments of self reflection are always beneficial.
