Physically / Psychological transition from accustomed environment to totally new environment.
Identify an opportunity or desire to create an escape.
Escape to dream, from world.
Designing expression method of their craving mind towards ideal world for people.
<Final outcome> "Dream Chaser"
<Prototype> Concept film “A person trying to escape to his ideal dream”
Dream that represents dreamer’s ideal world and people’s desire of it had relations with lucid dream. For the most popular method of experiencing lucid dream was called “DILD”, Dream-Initiated Lucid Dream. One of my colleague, Gus told me about his experience which explains DILD really well. What he did was imagining and gesturing as like he actually have apple in his hand while he is trying to sleep. The physical and psychological import to himself reminds of apple to his brain activity and led him to DILD lucid dream as a result. He also mentioned that this is voluntary intervene so it doesn’t always work but as I am designing environment to help someone lucid dream, it was enough research reference for me to refer to.
Therefore, as prototyping, I could try out design of a dream evoking mobile which has replacement of images about the dream wanted instead of toys of mobile for babies.
