Cooperation with the Youth Psychiatric Ward in Abarbanel Mental Hospital.
A set of five tools designed for painting on walls causing movement of the body.

A stain of colour, together with the movement of the body allows the patients

to express themselves intuitively and freely in the routine of their framework.

The process: In order to discover which tools will be most congruous with the goals of the project, the process included both patients and staff in Abarbanel Hospital for four months. The working method involved making a variety of prototypes at the workshop, then testing them with the patients and getting their feedback.
As a result of observation and documentation of these tests, i designed a set of five painting tools that create movement of the body.
