To answer the urgency to re-engage with my own reality due to the diagnosis of depression and anxiety, the project proposes a digital app that uses augmented reality as a tool of healing to cope through thresholds within a daily routine. Inspired by mechanisms in ASMR and animation, the tool is presented through digital devices that are common forms of escapism. Augmented reality becomes a method of mediation and reconnection by its integration of fiction within the real world. It enhances tangible space with intangible spatial imagination. The digital layer will create augmented experiences of space that highlights the existing environment through its animation, alteration and user interaction of spatial elements.
