As a reaction to projects that monitor negative behavior in public space, I created CrystalBallz, an imaginary data-analysis company specialised in predicting positivity instead of negativity. I showed that focussing on informing people about situations getting positive, actually ends up making things more positive. I created a bench that plays romantic music and shines a pink light after sitting on it with someone that you are attracted to.
The bench was installed in the Eindhoven City Hall during Dutch Design Week 2017.
