Ebb 'n Flow
Ebb and flood is something that is in a perfect natural balance, but also very unpredictable. With this prototype I tried to visualize this natural proces in an interactive way. The speed of the waves is generated by your bpm through a pulsesensor.
So now and then I go to the coast. Just to walk on the beachline, organizing my thoughts while I leave the imprint of my feet in the wet sand. To get inspired by the look, smell and feeling of the sea. I’ve got a fascination for the tides, ebb and flow. This playful interaction between the sea and the beach, give space and take space. This can be seen as a metaphor which is also very applicable to the moments that play a role in our lives. Whether it is the tide within relationships, work, the environment or our society in general. The water is sometimes up to our lips, sometimes we can relax while the water stands up to our ankles. It’s interesting to see how the sea and the beach solve this together, fairly structured and quite balanced in terms of time. Then I ask to myself: to what extent do I allow ebb and flow into my life?
