ScreenPlay: The Art of Waiting
ScreenPlay is an inclusive, touch-free interactive media display designed for healthcare waiting spaces. ScreenPlay enables people of all abilities and ages to create beautiful music and animations together on a large screen by moving around on the floor in front of it. ScreenPlay rewards presence on and slow movement across the play floor, maximizing physical accessibility and reducing hyperactivity in clinic waiting spaces. ScreenPlay is multisensory and features two original compositions by Dr. Deirdre Gribbin: Picometer, an interactive string quartet, and Birdsongs, a responsive forest soundscape, that augment the creative experience and enhance accessibility for those with visual challenges. ScreenPlay was designed and tested by researchers and clinicians at Canada’s largest children’s rehabilitation hospital, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital in Toronto. It is low maintenance, durable, scalable, evidence-based, and fun.
