EQO Radio

How can we use sound to trigger personal reflection?

The routine events of our everyday lives may feel mundane, but ultimately they are an expression of who we are as a person at that period of time. This project is about allowing people to reflect on moments from their everyday lives through captured sound bites. With the EQO interactive radio, a user can listen to a sound-based summary of a stretch of time in their life. They can scroll through time to hear sounds from former time periods and can also randomly retrieve previous sound bites. By using the experiential medium of sound to trigger personal reflection, EQO aims to make people more aware of the diversity, frequency, and value of their everyday experiences.
