Lola's World

This mirrored installation reflects the environment as someone with hyper-visual processing might be seeing their surroundings.

It is based on a description by Temple Grandin where they might see the world as 'mosaic-like'. She references this to an image in the Oliver Sacks book 'Migraine', which shows the breakdown of a migraine.

You can experience this during our 'FEEL IT' workshop. We also often bring this installation to exhibitions and conferences.

Being Ben

This perspex box mimics the external environment where all sounds can be heard with the same intensity.

It is based on descriptions by people on the autistic spectrum where they find it difficult to filter out unnecessary sounds in the environment. This means they find it difficult to focus on one voice / sound, to listen to instructions etc. There are many ways people with hyper-auditory processing difficulty can adapt.

Cristina

This is based on the stereotypical 'rock' that many films portray when someone is on the autistic spectrum.

Cristina is a chair that naturally rocks backwards and forwards when you sit on it. It is designed to help society recognise that rocking is a calming movement.

 

You may see someone with a sensory processing disorder rocking themselves in an effort to self-soothe when they have an overwhelming sensory experience.

Mehdiosmia

This recreates a situation explained to us by Daniel. He revealed to us that he found putting his clothes on after they were washed was almost unbearable due to the intensity of the smell. He would have to make his clothes dirty before he could wear them.

This installation gives you an idea of how an intense smell can affect our feelings and response to our environment.

We often bring this installation to exhibitions and conferences.
