Stop Projecting Your Feelings Onto Others

Psychological projection is a defence mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative)by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.

Concept

Stop projecting your feelings onto others is a computational interact projection and installation, reflecting the projection effect in Psychology. Psychological projection is a defence mechanism people subconsciously employ in order to cope with difficult feelings or emotions. The classic example of Freudian projection is that of a woman who has been unfaithful to her husband but who accuses her husband of cheating on her.
Sometimes, individual uses their own perspective to assume others perspective and believe it is true. We project the feelings that we cannot get, desire and guilty to others, in order to satisfy and reasonable our thoughts. Therefore, we forgot the essence of being sympathetic. We need to learn listening different perspective to piece the narratives and confess our flaw part.

Experiencing the artefact, through the process of scanning our face projecting on others face and controlling the shape by OSC controller might remind people how odd it is when we are projecting what we believe to people.
For the people who are being projected can also experience the frustration that people are controlling your thought, but you cannot do anything.
