This project is an application for the iPad or Browser, created with Dominik Szakacs and Laurence Hau on the theme "Objects of Desire". We used a web page and the interactions specific to this medium such as scrolling, clicking as a means of narration.
The user takes part in an interactive experience that propels him into the two themes of Steven Reiss's "16 Basic Desires" : acceptance and idealism. He is caught in a loop and is forced to follow a path traced by the idealistic ideas of our society. At each step, he accepts different ideals through a simple interaction: the click.
The user is allowed to do errors but has to repeat the task again until he reaches the perfect solution, only then can he go further. During the process, everything is made to provoke the user and test his patience. Each step is represented by a new task to accomplish.
To get inspired we collected different sounds, images, create videos on everything that the two words “acceptance” and “idealism” evoked. In a second step, we looked for a way to link the terms together.
