the start of therapeutic tools of grieving

My name is Matt. I’m currently doing my last year in Product Design at Edinburgh College of Art.

This year my project is focusing on grieving, specifically, ‘non-therapeutic tools of grieving’. By this I mean objects with a(n unusual) function based on experiences of grieving.

Through the developing of this project it has become clear that I want to produce engaging objects that promote a discourse around the ‘awkward’ subject of grief.

I started by researching a group of people’s specific experiences taken from their processes of grieving. I then came up with an abundance of ideas for objects from the mundane to the ridiculous. I then narrowed these down to ten or so possible objects. From there it was a case of making prototypes to be put up for discussion.
