This is the main idea I’m looking to work on and expand with. The medium I’m currently toying around is either an interactive panel or a zine with a short film. I’ll update with more visuals / writings / sketches once I’m back from overseas in late June.

The Exploration of Foods’ Colour on Humans
Colours play a significant role in our daily lives as it affects us psychologically, scientifically and in many other aspects. Psychology is an applied science that studies the mind and behaviour. Together with the exploration of the concept of perception, emotion and other areas, it aims to understand the human activity. This FYP intends to interpret individuals’ perception of nature through food and its colour. Foods’ colour has been studied and experimented by several scientists and researchers as they try to understand how colours affect human’s flavour and taste perceptions. This has enabled brands to understand consumers and market their food products according. Food is part of nature and it revolves around human daily activity as one of basic essentials. By exploring and understanding this, it enables people to realise the power of the understated role of colour in food as well as the subconscious process of human behavior in daily lives.
The possible outcome for this idea would probably be an installation of food display in an interesting way together with a booklet to explain the idea. An example that encompasses this kind of idea would be an advertisement for Dentist Paris Loft (a teeth-whitening service) that cleverly removes yellow colour from objects. Heinz print ads is also another example that portrays what food is like without ketchup.

Mankind has always attached colours with certain perception and emotions. The psychological effect helped us to understand and relate better with colours under various area of studies such as colorstrology (a combination of colour and astrology that suggests suitable colours to individuals based on their birth charts). Similarly, horoscope suggests as well as predicts happenings for the day or year. Both produce the effect of self-fulfilling prophecy on individuals as they read and make decisions with their subconscious mind based on what they’ve read. This FYP seeks to discover the influence of astrology on self fulfilling prophecy. As an individual, I read horoscope out of curiosity and for the fun of it. It provides some sense of hope, positivity and entertainment in life. Through this, it aims to understand individual behaviour towards the self fulfilment in astrology.
The possible outcome for this idea would be to create a make believe brand that sells water as a remedy towards the self fulfilling prophecy. An example would be Mr. Hyde Water Tonic by Eduardo del Fraile.

The project aims to propose an alternative way of looking at the way our bodies work, reversing the way bodily reactions to viruses or certain illnesses maybe referred to as deformations instead of adaptations. The project will also explore the abjection of bodily fluids, looking to turn their compositions into patterns.
