The Device / Device for mental disorders

The Device
The Device

In today’s society, one person out of 4 is victim of a mental disorder.
“The device” is a solution we adopted in order to expose people to the experience of a mental disorder. The effect generated by the device allows its user to fully understand and be temporarily affected by the conditions; it recreates the emotional, spatial, physical constraints and boundaries a mental disorder can create in a person. To involve people in taking action, raise compassion and understand those that have mental disorder, we thought it was necessary to allow them to feel the real conditions of living with a mental disorder.
