A two day interactive design lab with 6 invited artists to experiment with experiential interfaces that compliment the therapeutic activities. The Touch Trust was host to the first openFrameworks/ReacTickles design lab to be held in Wales. The Touch Trust is a centre that offers creative, touch-based, art, movement and dance programmes for individuals affected by Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and Profound Learning Difficulties (PLD).
Utilising an inspire-play-create-appropriate methodology, the aim of the lab was to generate ideas for experiential interfaces that compliment the therapeutic activities offered at the Touch Trust. Central to ideation has been the inclusion of end users and those who care for them in a rapid process of playful co-creation in authentic, real world settings.
