Abstract:This project is executed for the company Menperium that specializes in motivational sculptures. In the past they created sculptures which convey motivating and encouraging messages to employees. They gave us the challenge of designing and creating a motivational sculpture showing life purpose quotes. Beforehand, research was conducted into various types of art installations. Distinctions between these installations have been found and were used during the ideation phase. Next, multiple concept ideas have been created while keeping the requirements given by Menperium in mind. The final concept met all the requirements and was thus chosen to be created. The components of the chosen idea were further specified and realized. The finalized prototype was placed in the hallway of the Vrijhof to execute the prepared tests. Unfortunately, the installation did not meet the envisioned result on passersby. The amount of people standing still in order to observe the installation was moderate, yet if the prototype is going to be sold to companies the amount of people who have interest in it should be brought up. Future recommendations including adding a title or a sign with an explanation are given.
