As social beings, we thrive on building bonds and engaging in meaningful interactions with others. Creating a sense of belonging and mutual understanding builds the rich tapestry of relationships that shape our lives. Our innate desire to form connections and share emotions sets us apart from other species and defines what makes us human.
Bloom is a virtual garden that allows people to talk without hearing each other. The inspiration stems from a profound emotion of longing for family members in faraway locations and a desire to build intimate connections that transcend geographical boundaries.
Spoken words are transformed into a visual symphony of nature where participants are encouraged to focus on the underlying emotions conveyed through generated flowers. In Bloom, the removal of the direct exchange of spoken words emphasizes the non-verbal essence of communication, and encourages people to tap into their feelings and intuition, exploring the universality of human emotions that transcends language and cultural barriers.
By capturing the essence of emotions and weaving them into a vibrant tapestry of blossoms, Bloom offers an immersive and organic experience that highlights the deep connection between humans and uses the natural world as a metaphor of human emotions. It is a reminder that despite our physical distances, our emotional connections can continue to flourish and grow as vibrant and resilient as the flowers that grace the screen.
