notice. was my fourth year industrial design capstone project at Emily Carr University, featured in the 2023 Grad Show. This project was an exploratory research based design questioning users relationship with viewing the world and our relationship with visual, spatial, and physical senses. notice. explores the connections between body and environment, working to create mindfulness in one’s everyday life. Through material exploration, photography, and play, notice. aims to prompt participants to slow down, pay attention to their surroundings, and take time to notice.
