The sensory immersion space aims to provide visitors with a nurturing environment where they can unplug, escape the constant digital bombardment and reconnect with oneself. It brings out the contrast between digital and analogue worlds - while raising ethical questions about the impact of AI and digitalisation on mental health.

The curation of ANALOG GARDENS prioritises a serene atmosphere where visitors can reflect on the impact of digitalisation on their mental health and consider how to incorporate sensory experiences into their daily lives.

It is a sanctuary to counterbalance the digital age's effects on mental and emotional well-being.

Throughout this ethereal space, different zones invite visitors to return to primal forms of connection:
tactile stations to feel the raw textures; herbs and essential oils to breathe through; a corner for contemplative gardening; art supplies to nurture creativity; and quiet reading nooks with physical books, offering a break from digital distractions.

Several zones designate space for contemplation (as opposed to action) and solitude:
soundscapes and vinyls; guided meditation corners with warm lighting and comfortable seating; indoor gardens with real plants.

This place exists outside of time and space, yet here and now.
To bridge the analogue experiences gained here with the world outside, visitors are offered ways to re-engage: with their existence and others. Within, reflective spaces offer resources, tools and information to reflect on the interplay of analog and digital, intergrating it in daily life. 

It is also a hub for gatherings, workshops and dialogues exploring the intersection of AI, mental health and the role of the senses in nourishing the peaceful state of mind.

The space is designed as a no-phone and no-digital-device zone. Trained facilitators or guides are on site to help visitors navigate the space or host workshops or other events.
