MoodLab – Happy and Unhappy Scarf
MoodLab explores how self-tailored fashion and emotion tracking can help in mood management. Subjective feelings were described via a taxonomy of colour, doodles and shapes, which served as the basis for the design of the scarves, . During the design process participants gained deeper insight into their behavioural and emotional patterns, while simultaneously engaging in a creative process, which resulted in a fashion line been created that was tailored to each person. Merging art, design and fashion, the scarves highlight how objects can act as carriers. Demonstrating how fashion can be used to support people who may find it difficult to express or communicate their emotions to others.
