Sensory Sensitivity simulates the experience of light for children with autism. Harsh artificial lights are a daily source of lasting emotional and physical pain. The chaotic flashing and overlapping shadows serve to generate that experience of plummeting mood and energy. Contrary, mood lights of certain colors bring creativity and calmness. The textured ambient blue light brings us to a sensory room, where the shadows navigate and encourage interaction.
