Élan Vital was my final installation piece I constructed for my graphic design thesis Throughout my thesis, I made it my goal to affect the way we perceive the world and environment around one another. Each installation piece was created so that it would affect the emotions of whoever was near my installation in the hopes to stir some form of reaction. With months of researching other artists, environmental impacts, lighting, sounds, inner peace, and emotional responses it led me to my final piece, elan vital. Taking three days to construct, my final piece hung from the rafters with the sharp, pointed objects all around to create an initial discomforting vibe but within it I used soft material, specialized lighting, and soothing sounds, to create a Zen-like atmosphere. However, I left it to the audience to find this Zen atmosphere as a method of self-discovery.
