Rainbow Peppercorns

In INFO C265 -Interface Aesthetics, I have been examining the way we look at things. If we could look at objects, people, thoughts and things in multiple angles and layers, we would gain a deeper understanding and appreciation about these entities. If every flat thing becomes multi-dimensional through this new lens of looking, the world would be more rich and meaningful.

Using the multi-dimensional lens, I studied a rainbow peppercorn bottle in my kitchen. I learned a lot about the distinction between various types of peppercorns and the fabrication process for its container. I also revealed my emotional responses to this item. As a result, a rainbow peppercorn bottle is no longer just a name attached to a thing that ­­I use to sprinkle pepper on my plate. It has instead become a collection of many parts, many people’s work, many stories and emotions.
