The project collectively maintains two aims. The intentions of the project where to re-create meditative practices through creative software design and transpose the positive effects meditation can have on anxious behaviour, drawing attention to the similarities between meditation routine aims and a variation of categorized anxious symptoms.

Project Description

This project explores the role of software, via the Processing language, in creating relation environments for users.

Project Findings

The project used a selection of surveys and user testing methods to firstly interpret humans desire, need and attitude towards meditation. On completion of the project a selection of people were given charts and asked to draw comparisons between the software practice and traditional practice along with its possible benefits on anxious behaviour with further and regular practice. Feedback received stated that the content of each application clung to its design intentions and addressed the treatment aims of the practice whilst also contributing alterations which could be made to further enhance the application.
