This project all began with my own personal frustration into 'happy or not' button stations. I can't see how they realistically benefit anyone apart from the companies selling them which is wrong.They say that these stations collect masses of information and a fast pace. You and I know that we have pressed one of these stations out of pure instinct and without giving it any realistic thought. How can you give any constructive criticism when the only the only options you have are 4 different coloured smiley faces?

The idea behind this project is to show how important physical release is for people and that these 'happy or not' button stations hold no real importance other than making money for the pointless businesses that create them. I created 2 buttons, one green and one red that held no purpose and were advertised as having no purpose other than being a large scaled button that people find satisfying to press.
