Anti-hype is a spatial installation to support the wellness of overwhelmed 2019 Rhythm and Vines Festival goers. This live project is specific to the festival site and event, and it has been developed in consultation with the festival organisers. The design offers alternative assistance for medical services that are usually daunting for those experiencing discomfort, disorientation and fatigue from drug/alcohol effects. This project aids in reducing harm through simple interaction: each of the spaces offer a unique experience that encourages a present connection with the self through interaction and visual distraction. The experience and interaction with the Kinect technology is geared to created an experience of respite.
