REVERSAL

Reversal sets out to critique our urban cityscapes and highlight the inclusivity set out by the architecture within our built environments.

 

The project stems around a helmet that allows the user to experience a reversed perspective, in which the users vision, senses and physical actions must be adapted to suit the distorted reality.

The helmet functions via a screen in front of your eyes, that is fed the video stream via a GoPro mounted to the back of the helmet. Simple tasks become significantly more difficult as your body is forced to function in these unnatural and uncomfortable forms.

 

Through immersing individuals into this difficult to navigate world, it allows them to understand how existing architectures and infrastructures in our urban environments are not always designed to be inclusive for people with physical or visual disabilities to navigate.
