Project by Xiaoou Ji
Sisyphus is a research project that aims to increase the social acceptance of mood disorders groups through interdisciplinary and visual communication design practices. This project starts from the Proust effect, smell, memory, emotion, past - future to death, to explore design methods and design tools that serve the context in the entire process. This project emphasizes the social responsibility of design, which must be acknowledged when creating future interaction design and systems, in social and introspective ways.
