A Journey with Anxiety
An Immersive Experience// Social Anxiety// Interaction Design
A Journey with Anxiety was created in collaboration with Danielle Zwinkels, Joey Docter and Nathalie Verduin. Our aim was to create an immersive experience that would allow people what it's like to live with crippling social anxiety. We noticed that a lot of people have now idea how tough it can be to deal with constant social anxiety so our aim was to create an experience that would attempt to show what happens to people that have to deal with it.
Through research we learned more about what exactly happens to people when anxiety takes a hold of them. From no longer being able to understand the world and the people around them to not hearing a word that's being said around them any more, a lot goes on in their world once it gets a hold of them. They feel like they lose the grip on the real world. This is exactly what we wanted this experience to feel like.
