Can combining sound and natural forms enhance mental well-being?
BoYoung’s project explores combining soothing and tinkling sounds with natural forms. The aim is for the wearer to be relaxed through wearing and listening to the musical landscape of this ‘sound based’ jewellery.
The concept for the project evolved from the sound of wind chimes in a temple. In an increasingly urbanised world population, there is less chance to experience nature. However throughout history, being within nature has been recognised to be therapeutic.
Recreating natures’ sounds and natural forms that are reminiscent of nature can stir some memory of nature, presenting the opportunity to be relaxed and naturalised, therefore helping our mental wellbeing.
