Adults finding difficulty in addressing death can hamper their child’s expression of emotions and feelings that can stall the bereavement process.
This Project aims to prevent these situations and help families communicate to overcome life's chalenges smoothly.
The device is a set of boxes following the principle of Russian dolls. Each box is the vessel for an activity based on a psychology method adapted to a domestic environment; they encourage the users to pay attention to their senses and sentiments, speak about different aspects of death and express their feelings. The objects provide tangible perspectives over death, and the activities are organized according to the story of bereavement of a little dinosaur called Nino. It is friendly and playful, and acts as a mediator to make the issues more concrete and easier to understand and overcome.
