Created using Arduino.
Problematizing the concept of Rose Colored Glasses and the idiom of an idealistic view of reality with the direct confrontation of questions of grief and loss.
Yes or no questions like: “Have you ever experienced loss?” and “Have you ever cried?” can bring about very personal and difficult memories that directly counter to the idealistic view of life that ignores difficult feelings that is represented by the “rose colored glasses” expression.
While grief generally occurs in private isolation, these rose-colored glasses seek to turn these private moments into an insular moment that can be brought into public space while still retaining a sense of privacy. The hacked VR set gives the process of grief a portability that can be experienced anywhere by anyone.
