Bloom mimics your hand gesture to weave a hypnotic movement in the origami flowers as a kinetic response. Interact with Bloom by placing one hand parallel to the origami flower. Use ‘open’ and ‘close’ hand gestures to stimulate a response. For a seamless interaction, wait for seconds before changing hand gestures.

From our inspirations, we managed to create a concept drawing that stayed true to our vision. Initially, we were looking to have the amount of people as the input of the installation. However, after multiple rounds of ideation, we decided that it’ll be best to have our input as a single individual’s hand gesture.
