"To me, the Interaction Design Programme was a time in my life where I consciously invested in myself, and I'll forever be thankful for it. The IDP is what you make of it. With an open mind, it's an opportunity to zoom-out of your own career and life, and to be inspired by a network of incredibly diverse, genuine, and talented people."

Jose Chavarría final IDP project.

Jose Chavarría, 2021

What if we could experience the world from a different perspective? These masks enable us to explore and enhance the human perception of reality by swapping a human sense with a non-human sense. Inspired by turtles, bats and snakes, we are able to embody the different ways these creatures perceive the world.
