Master of Industrial Design
I want to redefine domesticity and challenge traditional gender roles by rethinking the division of domestic chores.
In this project, I discussed gender roles, especially for how the house design impacts gender inequality and the perfect female figure in traditional context— good mother, good wife. In the experiment part, I explored the possibility of collaborative housework and designed different objects related to daily life to remind people of the importance of collaboration.
For the final design part, I applied surveillance camera and machine learning technology to a private space, designed a radical service about chores, and also discussed how people react to Foucault’s idea about Panopticon.
