Goal: d+iD vision is to be a London based international research Hub. Its main research question is: What is enabled when designers design with, and for others? To design inclusively is to engage people deeply throughout the design process, sharing our practices and amalgamating people’s unique knowledge as design interventions. Through practice research d+iD will amplify, diversify, and mobilize this under-investigated aspect of practice and discourse; where design acts inclusively regardless of disability, gender, ethnicity, vulnerability, language or age.
The exploration of different frequencies and its influence on human emotional state leads to the conclusion that human body is able to perceive the vibrations without the sound and translate it into various types of emotions.
Aesthetically, the tone of this poster is intended to act as a visual representation of the harmonious tone of the 440 Hz
frequency, coupled with its affect towards the human mental state, as it often caused paranoia, depression, anxiety and severe stress. Ambiguity plays a huge part in the ability of this poster to communicate certain notions surrounding this frequency, however, I feel these negative emotions can be visualised through certain shapes and colours.
The target audience this project is aimed at holds a wide range of people in mind, it could be people with hearing problems, buta lso could be someone who would like to discover sound in a different and nontraditional way. Ultimately, whether it is for medical or recreational purposes, everyone could be given the chance to explore sound in various ways, despite their age or ethical background.
