Digital Therapy Garden

People have the tendency to present reality in social media in a brighter color than it is. This project takes a positive position to digital technology, and uses it as an enhancer of the physical world; to connect the physical and digital world. The therapy garden links these worlds and offers experiences for six senses to raise people’s awareness. We propose to add a sixth sense to the other five senses. Besides touch, hearing, smell, sight, and taste, the digital sense is integrated into all five senses, to enhance the five senses through digital mean. For example, people can experience the growth process with Augmented Reality, there will be screens projected and displayed on the meshes. Through using mesh moire to create playful space, we encourage people to experience and feel the texture of both the digital and the physical world.
