The hiddenemotions.org launching

After analysing the results of the first intervention where I started on Instagram to interchange fears with songs, using the free system “Weebly” I set up a simple website open to people to share.

www.hiddenemotions.org

Main constrains

  • As a simple website I don’t have data base to analyse or keep the data, I did everything manually so it took long time to answer.
  • The website was iterative because first people didn’t understand that the song to share was not related to the fear… was mostly to support or relief
  • Also I have to explain why to use just the email, because is the only tool I had.
  • Because everthing was manually it was hard to organized what song for who.

General Results

In 48 hours more than 10 fears were shared, for choosing the songs I found the support of some friend according to the genre… even though most of the people choose “surprise genre”, for the song chooser

Now the song criteria were to find a lyric and rhythm to change the fear for more confident.

In order to receive the feedback it was defined a small survey to identify de user perception of the song

Reflections

Even though people didn’t answer the survey, by sharing the fear it’s possible to conclude there is a trend of unhealthy fears… something the people is concern about that is based in assumptions and not a direct danger, also the current worried of performance could be a good insight so people could have into the companies better ways to measure their performance and have more certainity what they are doing god or wrong. Also to improve the project it will be important people give a little bit more context.

About the sexual harrassment report this is a new breakthrough that makes me think in the huge need to connect the project with authorities or organizations that protect workers rights. Also for the future website to have more ways to interact, measure, or help people will create a real impact or the change expected. The idea is to go beyond the song and the song becomes a pretext.
