Authors: Wong, Christina Yu Wen

Abstract: The Elimination of Clutter is a project that seeks to highlight the importance of decluttering our visual field through a redesigned visual system for our local rail transport. This project was first mainly inspired by the designer’s own experience with enochlophobia (the fear of crowds and crowded spaces) in her daily life. Initial research areas include the Japanese design concepts of Kanso, Shibui and Koko, the concept of Minimalism in visual arts, as well as various scientific and psychological experiments conducted to show what clutter does to the human brain. On the other hand, our local rail transport system has been repeatedly berated for being overcrowded and unreliable over the recent years, and as a frequent rider who experiences mild enochlophobia daily, the designer wonders what can she do as a designer to respond to this issue. Therefore by combining the research areas and the initial inspiration of this project, this project seeks to create a redesigned decluttered visual system for our local rail transport. The Elimination of Clutter features a reimagining of our local rail transport map based on the thought and essence of Kanso, minimalism and Shibui.
