Kinesics: kroppsspråk i möbler
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis [Artistic work]
I have always been told that form follows function. But does it have to be that way? I decided to see it from another angle.
Kinesics is a term form non verbal komunication. In my thesis project I have been working with body language in furniture. I believe that furniture, just like us, has an expression and a character. We often tend to desccribe furniture with the same words as we describe people, for example: "A relaxed chair" or "a cocky table". I wanted to exaggerate the expression by applying body language to my furniture and make them become something more than just a function. I wanted to give them a character and bring them to life.
