This project focuses on the group of people who often have a hard time during important decision-making processes. It tries to explore a new way of communicating with them and provide a relaxed method for them to enjoy making choices.
It is an installation based on the transformation of the principle of Chinese-walking horse lantern. The built-in part of the installation consists of three sets of illustrations: the moon phase, the imagery, and the beasts of the Classic of Mountains and Seas. They run at different speeds and they are respectively used to solve different directional questions.
The work uses photo paper to print the patterns of the lamp body, and then cuts and folds into the lamp frame. In terms of technology, the LED lights are attached on the small motor and their wires are connected to the same switch, then the extension tube is inserted on the motor. When the small motor is running, the light of the installation can be on and three sets of illustrations can be driven to rotate. Its result is to give people some answers to the puzzles of choice-making. People can close their eyes and turn on the switch, then meditate on their questions. After turning off the switch, the illustrations staying in the three key frames is the answers. The process is likened to a holy moment, giving the chance to believe in the choice given by a random moment.
This project aims to provide a different way of decision-making for people with difficulty in making choices, create "a holy moment", and reduce their anxiety of making choices. Participants can participate in the process and get some inspiration for making decisions. Believing in randomness, then you experience holy moments.
