Uncomfortable Immersion Toolkit

This project explores the way that Western society deals with grief; especially in adolescents. It considers the emotional complexities within grief and the socio-cultural misconceptions. Personal autonomy was strongly encouraged in their grief journey, using Human-Centred Design. A grief book was created to guide the bereaving to construct ritual objects, which help the adolescent process and comprehend at their own pace, while maintaining important metaphysical relationships with the deceased in the form of tangible reminders of the deceased through their handwriting onto crafted objects.
