Hi, this is blog is mainly for me to put down my thoughts on the Masters course I’ve taken in Animation and Visualisation.
My chosen area of study is to explore how to use interactive technology to create relaxation and therapy experiences. I want to research where there may be a need for these experiences and what specific requirements there might be, then prototype a number of different concepts that could potentially help relaxation such as creative drawing software that gives the user ambient audio-visual feedback. I hope to look at the psychology of interaction and how sound and visuals can affect a person’s state of mind. I’ll also be exploring the use of different interfaces to find ways of providing experiences that are intuitive but also have depth and subtlety.
