A Fable of Catching Leaves

Digital fabrication

It is a practical-oriented ecological narrative project that can be seen as the second part of the forest trilogy.In this project, the protagonist still lives in a highly isolated society between humans and the ecosystem. And suffer from natural deficiency disorders.She received a treatment kit from a strange doctor and was told that she needed to find a solution in the forest

In this project, I created a series of fictional props:


1. Visually based plant search device

In the constructed worldview, it aims to help the protagonist find the plants they want and highlight them in the picture.


2. Diffusion device based on smell

A device based on distillation and extraction principles that can flexibly extract beneficial substances from the environment and convert them into inhalable gases through diffusion devices in small chambers.

This device is usually used in a fixed location, close to the water source


3. Auditory based interactive devices

Sound beyond human detection frequency can be captured more sensitively, or sound can be collected, edited, and converted through control devices.

It can also convert the original sound frequency and emit sound at a specific frequency. They are usually used in conjunction with a keyboard.


4. Tactile based collection device

A device that can achieve precise collection and guide users to touch samples.


5. Storage container

A container that can store samples for a short period of time, with constant temperature and humidity isolation. It has the ability to isolate communication between internal and external media.


The dark cans also shield certain radiation bands, while the large boxes accommodate all equipment. Through these props, the protagonist gradually establishes entangled connections with the ecosystem by establishing embodied sensory experiences.Props are created based on the theory of speculative design, using techniques of defamiliarization and material agency to explore the constructive role of artificial products in establishing ecological criticism.
