Promoting Mindfulness: A Toolkit for Meditation & Art Making
Mindfulness in America has grown in popularity in the last century. This project seeks to identify what mindfulness is, how it is obtained, and what effects it has on individuals. This project discovers how to practice mindfulness with art tools manifesting in a toolkit designed to facilitate the process. The toolkit serves as a jumping off point to further encourage the design of products to support mindfulness and as an exploration in the benefits to artists and non-artists alike.
