A transformative hairhoop as a toy that sparks creative energy
Things spark feelings. Assessories are like toys for adults. So I imagine a hair assessory that looks like a crown. This hairhoop as an object is a symbol of antenna that captures creative energy that lands from the Universe. It is designed to serve as a daily ritual object that helps to get into a flow state and anchor the feelings of inspiration, a-ha moments. The design of this hairhoop-crown resembles the multiple hands of an octopus, and builds up a metaphor of an octopus as a symbol of multitudes, a networked thinking (creativity), plurality of identities that creative lifestyle enables.
The material of this hairhoop is easy to bend. Alliuminum or other cheap metal, so that people can access it easily. The bending part is important - the hairhoop has to fit the owners headsize easily and transform when played with - its "octopus hands" work like a toy and are easy to twist depending on mood and intention.
Octahoop are hand-made to express the value of human time. Local makers freely access the knowledge of how to make an Octahoop through a website. Makers host a community meetups worldwide where newbie Octahoopers learn a craft of Octahooping. In the process of these meetups, learners learn chemistry and about materials, which connect newborn creators with the Earth, its elements and lay the basis for their path towards regenerative creativity.
From outside attention to inward reflection: Octahoop is worn on your own, when creating and not in public or socially.
This idea came to my mind when observing how different clothes and assessories exist for different occasions and rituals, for example for cooking time there's an apron, for rainy time there's a raincoat, for weddings and funerals there are special clothes too. But what about special assessories for creativity time?
