|Visitations is a collection of meditative, virtual reality vignettes designed to improve the "set and setting" (mindset and location) for patients undergoing ketamine infusion therapy and was assembled for use in a study conducted by researchers at Manhattan Restorative Health Sciences. It is an artwork which employs design strategies tailored to support therapeutic outcomes. These strategies include the use of artistic techniques which have measurable physiological effects and user experience design decisions which take into account the specific needs of incapacitated patients. This talk will consider the unique needs of patients and the visual and aural design principles explored in the project.
