Dialogue with Your Muse

Thru everyday objects. The muse not only plays the role as a creative outlet, but also an advisor, a listener, and a friend. Originating from an ancient Roman myth that people used to believe that creativity was not embodied in human being but existed in some remote spirit that would come to your side and tell you what to do. I tried to explore the imaginary space between the person and his or her own muse in this project.

The Stethoscope

Consult your muse for diagnose. The stethoscope delivers your heartbeat to the muse, and later prints out a prescription with advice for your current circumstances.

The Bookshelf

The muse passes wisdom to you through books. On the bookshelf there are different sizes of books made with stack of e-paper, which are able to download new content. The glowing cover and spine are the soft whisper from the muse which create a new mode of dialogue.

The Phone

Leave a message to the muse. Your muse is not around and you need to talk. Dial the bluetooth headset and leave your frustration, struggle, thoughts or anxiety in the messages.
