Dancing with Nature – A Healing Metronome by Uuendy Lau
Design Trust: Critically Homemade
In times of crisis and massive change, people may find themselves overwhelmed with growing fear and anxiety, hindering attention and productivity as negative thoughts dominate and routines become disrupted.
Designed to serve as a therapeutic object, ‘Dancing with Nature’ is a healing metronome that demonstrates an alternative pace of thinking and performs as an empowering probe that encourages users to reconsider their existing relationships with the natural environment, exploring new contexts for users to re-experience or reconnect with nature. Through an engaging process of observation, imagination and immersion, this prototype initiates a speculative dialogue between humans and the environment that inquires the curious juxtaposition of dynamic motions and rhythms choreographed by the respective subjects.
