The Breathing Paper Bag

The Breathing Paper Bag

Driven by Csikszentmihalyi’s description of objects as biological organisms and to explore the topic of body language to understand the digital world, I created the prototype Breathing Bag.

The prototype aims to provide the user with an atmosphere of presence to counteract feelings of aloneness. In my opinion, Interaction design focuses more on the head than on the body. The interaction is sometimes relying too much on thinking and not enough on feeling and doing. The Breathing Bag provides an interpretation of these concepts in a more natural and easy way.
