Things for Thought


Touch is a universal language. Through exploring materiality and reading artefacts physically, we are able to access innovative ways of connecting with others. These artefacts act as a starting point for discussion and enable creative thinking by allowing users an opportunity to better understand their unique and shared experiences of the world.

This toolkit uses haptic interaction to facilitate an active space for discussion and idea generation around the topic of belonging. The aim is to create a psychosocial space that allows users explore their experience in a productive and inclusive environment. By using a shared language, it creates an opportunity for innovative discussion around the topic of belonging and designing for socially inclusive communities.
