How to Charge Humans



















































Energy bar packaging designed with battery as a metaphor. Most technological products need to be charged. If the human body is the most sophisticated machinery, how do we charge them physically and mentally? This project treats our human bodies as industrial products.

My exploration of this concept began with designing the packaging of physical food and eventually elevated to mental food that satisfies one's spiritual needs to reveal the realities of contemporary society and the conflict/balance between worldly desires and inner happiness.
Just like a battery, everything has positive and negative sides. On one side is status, money, and fame, and on the other is family, health, time, and companionship. Both sides are crucial and hard to abandon in today's society, but how do you balance them to achieve happiness?
