The Food Booth ( we will think of a better name ^^)

The Food Booth ( we will think of a better name ^^)

Playing with the idea, that we have two memory storages in our body (scientifically proven), that we don´t need objects to remember and that memory is yourself, we developed a concept of a new kind of booth.

If we remember situations, we actualy remember our status. Who we were at that moment. Were we said, happy, content, etc…? We remember the emotions more than we can remember smell( which is more of trigger than a memory)

All the emotions in our guts are true and honest. Our face translates those emotions. But often we try to fake people and ourselfs about our true emotions. So if we are sad we sometime try to hide it by smiling. The muscles in our face create the visual picture of our emotions. It is proven though, that we don´t have the full control of our facial muscles. If the gut says ” I am depressed” our face can show the real emotion. But in daily life we and people around us are not able to read the real messages in our face or our emotional status. Special developed face scans can though. (and Paul Ekmann, the father of face reading ^^)

So, we have the idea of a booth, which can scan your face and read, how your true emotional status is. It gives you honest and real feedback. The product, that the booth will give you is something to eat. A message will be printed on it, to tell you what your really are at that moment. So the food will give information for your brain and energy input for your gut. You eat your real emotions, which become your own blood and flesh. A cycle of emotion is developed. The brain tells the head/face the emotions. The booth reads the face, gives the person the written translation, the person can consciously take that information, think and eat again. That way the person can consciously engange with himself. Will remember the moment(and facts) in the future and knows who he was at that time.

Our next steps are to think about how the booth can look like (for example a mirror) and what kind of emotional food he will get.
We had first ideas and were thinking of ice cream. Everyone has good connections to ice cream. Its also like a treat after a doctors visit. To engange with yourself can be scary and hard. So showing the booth your real face gets rewarded with ice cream. Depending on your emotional status each person gets another kind of ice cream flavour( for example if you feel low, carrot is said to be good for energy). Also the written statement about yourself can be printed on the waffle.
Another good thing about ice cream is, that it melts. So you have no chance of keeping it and storage it somewhere. You are forced to eat it and at the end you will have your memory without an unnecessary object, that you acutaly don´t need!
