Snoösphere is a responsive sensory environment to roam, touch and explore. Created by Lull Studios as part of the Big Anxiety Festival, employing autistic artists’ insight into hyper-sensitivity, Snoösphere engages all of the senses using playful spatial and intelligent design.
Snoösphere is created by Lull Studios and collaborators, including autistic artists, who have a unique, enhanced sense of how spaces perform sensorially and energetically. The installation stimulates the sensorium in myriad inventive ways. Everything can be touched and smelled (like the silver chocolate curtain!), and objects and surfaces respond intelligently to curiosity.
Snoösphere is inspired by Dutch snoezelen, which are stimulation and relaxation environments used in care and rehabilitation contexts. We bring snoezelen up to date for a digital future when we all need tools and spaces for mitigating sensory anxiety.
A landmark project arising from research and workshops with autistic young people and adults in Sydney and Singapore, Snoösphere offers increased participation for perceptually diverse audiences. Snoösphere pushes the boundaries of engagement and arts access to gain insight into neuro-diversity, as well as to explore perceptual experiences with all audiences.
