Bag

This was an assignment based on emotion. We were asked to translate an emotion into a product. Annelien chose “surprise”, and to find this emotion she thought about the process of wondering about things that you don’t know about, and how surprise can be generated when you find out.  She looked back at my youth, watching young children’s fantasy play and enjoying fairytales. With children’s eyes she tried looking at shapes. With her hands Annelien touched and felt materials. This journey ended with this bag in the shape of a flower. This is a young girls fantasy. You can wonder what’s in the bag? Will it be a surprise?  What is the experience of the surprise?
