Illumia: Mental health focused digital application.
lllumia is a digital application that matches users with different therapies depending on their individual needs. Illumia creates procedurally generated worlds using interactive environmental artifacts that are derived from developed therapeutic techniques. Users decide which interactions, and therefore which therapies, are more or less effective for them. During this discovery process, Illumia supports users by providing them with educational resources, access to local providers, and relevant self-help exercises.
About the Designer
I’m a designer and artist whose practice explores rich human experiences, methods of community building, and self empowerment through multimedia works. I’m especially interested in looking at how design thinking can be applied when working with disenfranchised users, and groups of people who are often forgotten in the world of design.
