Connecting with nature through tangible, digital experiences
Exploring therapeutic care in collaboration with the BBC natural history unit. This pilot project, which builds on the Objects of Escape, initiated during Tangible Memories, explores the therapeutic potential of cutting-edge technologies, to bring nature and natural environments into healthcare settings to enhance well-being.
Using sound and image archives from the BBC Natural History Unit, we are exploring multi-sensory and immersive experiences, such as Virtual Reality, tactile ‘Mutual Instruments’ and a rocking chair that transports the sitter to the natural world through evocative soundscapes.
This collaborative project is working alongside healthcare practitioners, families and teenage and young adult patients at the Bristol Oncology Centre and older people living with dementia and their families and carers at Brunelcare’s Deerhurst home.
