Concept of thoughtless awareness in toy industry & a toy line of lightness

juana

It is an ancient yet extremely modern concept. Thoughtless is the state of the person who is always focused and happy, whose creativity constantly flows with brilliance and purity, no space for misinterpretations, sadness, stupidity and other kinds of imbalances. This concept is related to a positive and healthy state of mind, very close to the ideal lifestyle which we want to create nowadays in our urban and no urban environments. Hence, it is a concept valid and fully adaptable to the toys manufacture.

Focus: to transmit feelings of joy, lightness, fun, simplicity.

Design: preference of rounded shapes, elements & inspirations from the nature, fresh character and great characters. 

Toy materials: soft materials, attractive to the hands, really easy to handle and carry, not harsh, sometimes not hard at all, fabrics, an examplary line where the child can have complete control on it and does not have to ask the parents to do something (like changing batteries, push the button ecc).

Example of toy: From the idea of Sensitive Floor, developed by IO Agency last year: an interactive video projection designed specifically to be walked on. ~~~~> Brought to toy industry in form of a….

… scene – projector which creates, on the wall, a touch sensitive playing platform. Scenes can include:

a. interactive art scenes

b. learning games

c. story telling sequences

two examples of scenes:

1. A spiral is projected and a small elephant has to be accompanied by one finger along the spiral path from the outside to the inside extreme.

2. Moving sea Waves are projected with floating jellyfish. When a jelly is fully covered by the hand it will disappear but another jelly will appear in another corner of the sea scenario.

How to use it: the projector can be placed on a cabinet, and images will appear on the wall or furniture cabinet in front of it.

 

 

Silent warrior’s notes on the weekend

The more i live the more I find ties between these two forces animating and shaping the time we are all blending in. But these ties are of unnatural type. For Attention with capital “A” here it is meant Divine force, Fragrant Purpose, Self Connection… there are many creative words to describe it because the Pure Attention is the one governing the all Universe. She / He is not identified with any purposes but Joy and Love. How beautiful would be the place we inhabit now if these force would take over! Let’s support Her!

 

Anxiety is the opposite which I am softly and speedily learning (?) in this Hong Kong Jungle context. Weekend comes and Attention graciously runs away for the ones who are not deeply attached to her. The busy cities have too much on the plate, now we call this “too much” with the name of entertainments. The list is infinite and at the core is really boring and creativity killing!

 

We start to believe that we can have fun by doing lots of things in one day or by trying different places and activities. We have this desire to be busy, we must do something, cannot just stay sitted and contemplate the view of the nature or the view of our friend’s minds sipping tea, we need to have more views from outside coming within us and spoil ourselves. I went to wash my hands at the toilette in the movie theatre yesterday and when I stepped into the bathroom it was totally wall papered with coming movie posters. I understand that something not always gentle is intentionally pushing its own way into our perception and senses wherever we go.

 

My inner world / system is working hard to keep the doors closed to these agents and imbibe itself with cool attention. This is a short note about how it feels to have a warrior mind today, a warrior of Silence. Attention & Silence, the same force.
