Anger is typically understood as an uncontrollable emotion which inflicts harm, but from other perspectives anger can be seen as a source of energy. Musicians channel their anger into rock songs, reformers translate it into movements, designers turn it into products. Anger signifies change. Since the expression of anger is inhibited through socialization, it is difficult to find spaces in which we can freely and safely express and experience anger, and we are kept from using the energy of anger to communicate with ourselves and with society at large.
This project investigates into anger deeply and tries to create an architecture which will free anger, the usually suppressed emotion in society, and tries to explore how this uncontrollable emotion, could be nurtured through systematic training.
“Pink Tax” is a 10-weeks design project we managed to encourage engagement and debate around the topic “Gender Equality” in public settings.
It responds to the UK public body Equality and Human Rights Commission. We propose a design for a pop-up salon called "The Fairer Barber" where haircut prices are calculated based on many other factors expect gender and where volunteers began to talk about their own experiences about gender inequality.
