States of Mind (2015)

FACT(the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool), with AHRC-RCA Creative Exchange project. Lead designer Ben Koslowski, RCA-CX PhD student. ‘States of Mind’ ( is a collaborative hybrid-design project between design practitioners, academic contributors and a cultural organisation, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The project formed part of FACT Liverpool’s ‘Group Therapy’ exhibition. As a new commission for FACT Liverpool, the project offered a hybrid analog-digital platform that allowed visitors to the gallery to represent and share their individual states-of-mind in response to the question “What does your mental health look like right now?” It provided a new way of engaging gallery visitors with the exhibition subject matter on mental distress in a digital age.
