  • therapeutic
  • paper is rough, feels like papercut
  • want to go back and forth, non linear movement

MOVE – https://editor.p5js.org/nt1475@nyu.edu/full/rkRRIZiTX

  • people were more active with it (move fast)
  • need to sense motion as well, not only tilt

  • a lot of questions about hygiene
  • is this really a role for tech? or yoga?
  • what is an effective actuator in this case? most things would be distracting

  • do people really sync? we’re biologically different, my slow might not be your slow?

After playtesting the 4 ideas – touch, move, breathe, connect, it was apparent that touch was most effective in slowing people down (given the reasons above as well as the context of it being a semi-public interactive installation).

As a result I developed it further and came up with the idea below.
