What happens if our daily rituals no longer work? Design does not kick the user in the form of a message, but design lays the foundation for a storyline performance. Our actions are influenced by the things and the movements we can do with them. What happens when we create new stages for everyday actions?

Everyday rituals

Everyday rituals

We explore things, rituals and relationships with our bodies and our actions - in everyday life we do most things on the side – without much thought. But what shapes these rituals of everyday life? Can we influence the rituals and what changes if we just do things differently than we are used to? When we perceive (even if we just do it by the way) mechanisms start to move, we recognize, interpret and interpret the experience. How something is perceived depends on cultural imprinting and individual experience, so even the interpretation of common things and experiences is always an individual one.

Body and action

A type of use can become a ritual and the interaction with things is important for our self-image. Not just what we eat is part of our culture also how we eat, use dishes, how they look like and also with whom and when. But how can we shape rituals , culture and self-understanding? Design allows access to things. In this way, we design things, interactions and try to make the environment accessible to humans – this is how the physical experience is deliberately designed. And thus, the dimensions of the human body already form a recurring clue in the design. This means not just creating in reference to the human body with its physical properties and the possibilities of movement described, it also implements human needs, desires and preferences, which it also can be expressed in form, function and usage.
