dc.description.abstractThis practice-based project prototypes a virtual reality platform-based mindfulness experience. This experience is framed within therapeutic immersive environment design. Created in response to an ever stressful and demanding contemporary life providing a mindfulness meditation located within a serene New Zealand environment. Your Mind Matters is the intersection of technologically driven immersive experiences and mindfulness. The practice speculates, through iterative experimentation, on the potential of these devices when they are combined with contemplative meditative practices. This paper aims to provide an insight into the complex design process covering various stages of the production pipeline covering the methodological, contextual and technical aspects of the project. Examining research on mindfulness and VR as therapeutic tools and the quality of immersion. Covering methodology regarding user experience such as User Experience Design and Human Computer Interaction Design discussing how these informed the practice. Providing an overview of the iterative journey and the thinking behind the making of this research project.en_NZ
