Aperture, Multi-Sensory Tool for Mental Health Therapy (2018) ︎

Honours Thesis, Bachelor of Industrial Design , RMIT University
One in two Australians will be affected by a mental illness in their lives (Black Dog Institute, 2014), this is only compounded by the reality that nearly 1 million Australians will be living with dementia by 2050 (Deloitte Access Economics, 2010). An increasingly applicable medium of non-pharmacological therapy is the use of virtual reality headsets within the healthcare field. The benefits of this method are become clearer with every day, as the maturing of the technology enables improved accessibility, both financially and adaptability, as the motion-sickness issues and hardware requirements are removed.

I acknowledge the people of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung language groups of the eastern Kulin Nations on whose unceded lands I conduct my work. I respectfully acknowledge their Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
