Title of Work

Recovery Toolkit


My work explores the materiality of things, our relationship to objects and the transformative power of design to enhance lives. Multi-layered objects require effort to learn, understand and appreciate but the effort invested is rewarded in the bond built between user and object.

The Recovery Toolkit is an exploration of the materiality of things and how that can be exploited to tackle one of the biggest issues facing humanity. The Toolkit comprises a set of tools that are used to support the Depression recovery process and then encourage behaviours that engender good mental health.
