Inspiration

I was deeply inspired by the James-Lange theory which refers to a hypothesis on the origin and nature of emotion.

The basic premise of the theory is that physiological arousal instigates the experience of a specific emtion. Instead of feeling and subsequent physiological response, the theory proposes that the physiological change is primary, and emotion is then experience when the brain reacts to the information received via the body’s nervous system.
— James-Lange Theory wikipedia

In other words, our physical reaction could impact on our emotion. Then, I came up with an idea. Can I encourage people do high-five more to create an exciting and vibrant communities?

This project was exhibited in ITP Winter show 2013. I’ve contacted by a variety range of people from artists to educators. They wanted to try this on their place. I am looking forward to develop further to involve more communities to promote and encourage more positive physical interaction.
