Fragments Of Nature
Research shows that a natural environment can help to relieve stress, stimulates to move and incite to social contact, these are only a few reasons why the presence of nature is so important.
Fragments Of Nature is an interactive experience designed to bring people closer to nature. By stimulating multiple senses, the design is made to contribute to a healthy mental and physical wellbeing. The design consists of a plaster shell which contains parts of nature, by feeling, smelling and hearing. People can experience nature on a small scale in a place where it does not occur.
Everyone experiences things in a different way, for example the smell of burned wood or the sound of an off-road path brings up a different memory in everyone. With the use of this design I want to bring out these memories.
