HUANXING SPACE: Pitch black night, Memories back to my particolored childhood, Oh—the age of innocence.
As a post-80s, you may have the same experience. As night falls, one may wield the flashlight to his heart content. Then naughty light beams, swing back and forth, break the silence of the night. At that moment, the joy is so simple for you. However, time rolls on, things are changing constantly. Under flashing neon, we may have forgotten the old innocent and joyful youth.

For natives, East Street in Nanchuan district of Sichuan province is a classic place to remember as it carries loads of their old memories. Hustle and bustle, this place is thronged with boisterous shops and catchy street cries. All those lent the street a certain vividness in people’s hearts. Thus, the marketplace really bears too much emotions. But today, it seems that the shabby street is fading away, or it is waiting for the resurrection.
In March 2019, the protection and development plan was put into practice in Nanchuan district. According to the principle of “restoring the old as the old”, this plan aims to forge the first comprehensive cultural and travel project in China with common people’s real life as its core based on its original layout. Space Wake Up, the design agency undertook the design work of this project’s second stage, decided to build an artistic installation outdoors to promote the affective interaction between people and the environment.

How to reappear those happy days buried deeply in our thoughts? We alighted by the experience—adventuring in the dark with flashlight in our childhood. Light Kaleidoscope is the miraculous brightness that reminds us of the life fragments in this street. The building’s shape is made after the old-fashioned flashlight. Being doubly magnified, the building’s interior develops a vertical space for stay naturally. Decorated with 6 pieces of stainless steel mirrors, the inside provides a magical reflection of light and shade.There is a high-definition LED screen as the back cover in the end of this “flashlight”. Aided by the mirrors’ reflection, the kaleidoscope pattern shows a relentlessly changing colors. Besides, the deep and vertical space can serve as a good direction guide.

After grasping the structure of the internal space, we managed to avoid the oppressed and cramped feeling brought by the “corridor” pattern, but to present a kind of warm feeling as if one is crowded by colorful dreams in childhood. On the one hand, flashlight points out the direction for us in the dark night, on the other hand, our memory fragments congealed and recombined. By this way, all kinds of feelings well up in one’s heart.

There is our hope to reinvigorate the East Street which was used to be busy but now is quite and lead people back to their happy life with Light kaleidoscope, a building that symbols those old days.This kind of tailored “emotional design” embodies the affection of the design company for East Street.“Emotional design” was first put forward by American cognitive psychologists Donald Arthur Norman in his work Emotional Design.

In Norman’s mind, design includes three stages: instinct, behavior then reflection. Emotion is the peculiar feature of human, which means it sometimes stands against reason and logic. Therefore, if we attach emotion and mood to city and its development and update—the product of industrialization that represents the standardized production, it will more easily get popular.
Light Kaleidoscope helps people pick up yesterday’s emotional pieces from memories of urban development. When a person gets involved in the familiar “mnemonic symbol”, Light Kaleidoscope throws people into a contagious emotional space depends on its immersion space design. From memory to space, from physical experience to mental experience, the affective commitment is completed, which fully shows the idea of emotional design. Besides, visual art interactive devices like Recorder Bar, Bp Phone, Palm Phone and so on also follow this philosophy.

The engine of urban development and social progress is logic and reason. Whereas, as we noticed the fading human’s emotional needs due to the too fast pace of city development, it comes to us that emotional design is maybe an effective solution to this problem during city updating process.
