How to Connect
Connect through the Grey Cup Fesitival:

Few options in health care promote communication of feelings between people. Through an autoethnographic approach, I showed that I could imagine interoceptive experiences and draw feelings on paper. My experimentation continued with an account of creating my feelings in 3D. The creative processes I used to model feelings were informed by constructive solid geometry and the Dada assemblage art style. I developed a Hi-Fi Prototype using MaxMSP and a final product using Unity3D with collaborators. The product was created to map and display the ephemeral qualities of feelings. Following the Patient-Oriented Research method, I consulted patient partners after they tested the prototype. I applied findings from focus groups and user observation sessions using iterative methods to enhance the product's usability. Learnings from computational creativity contributed to the development of EmotionMirror as a creativity support tool for health and wellness. The product leverages computer-aided graphics to visualise and share internal body signals' location, intensity, and salience. Thebrowser-based user interface consists of three main features. First: a 3D body map. Second: 3D objects and parametric drawings coined as Interoceptive Metaphors assembled within the body map frame. Third: An intuitive user interface developed using Human-Centered Design principles. Researchers, artists, and the public can access the web application to create and communicate their feelings on
