THE DEVICE

Breaking a Glass

For my random device, I came up with breaking a glass, trying to see what I can get from the random device generator as a starting point. Though I was unsuccessful into finding something physical from it, I realized that there are emotions related with my actions before, while, and after breaking it.

BREAKING DIFFERENT TYPES OF MATERIALS

Breaking the glass did not help me find any random piece that would lead me to the start of my experiments. Instead I came to a realization that whilst i was breaking the glass I released and experienced different kinds of emotions.

I then experimented on breaking objects with different materiality. The result was that in every material that I broke came different kinds of emotions.
