A search for ways to express my emotions in a complex society
In our society it has become the norm to suppress our inner world and show our mask, in social situations or through social media. Being under constant surveillance leads to self-censorship, affecting our actions. The pressure to achieve and to meet the norm can become too much at times. Holding in our emotions, showing our good side and withholding our secrets can create emotional imbalance.
I searched for ways to express my emotions better in different situations, so I designed different Emoticocoons to use to create my own private area, where I can just be quiet or let out all of my emotions. With this I can experience my personal space and feel the freedom of letting go. In this Emoticocoon I can express my true needs and desires without the outside world demanding me to be something other than I really am.
