"Image when you’re sitting in your living room and you want to know what time it is. So you decide to look at the clock on the wall, and you see the time. When you put your eyes towards the clock. You see the wall, the clock, the fingers of the clock, etc. So your eyes actually capture all this information, while your brain only captures the time from the combination of the fingers of the clock. This system is called ‘manipulating within tolerances’.
Having sight comes not just handy, but also make us able to have memories and being able to witness things. This gives us emotions in our brain which come up when we see a certain thing of talk about a certain topic. This is the first step in completely understanding Serial Vision.
“Image walking down a straight street with half way down the street a small courtyard and on the end a small movement to the right with a monument hidden at the end. In this scenario a large amount of ‘Visions’ are coupled to each other besides us walking in one singular pace.
When a person is walking down a city on a single pace the vision of the city keeps constantly changing and there appear serial differences and visual interests (reference points). This is called ‘Serial Vision’.
So our personal goal is to manipulate de parts of a path we have to follow so emotions while come up inside of us. Let’s compare a straight simple street with the street which was described before. When we would walk a similar distance in both examples, the street from the example would be way more pleasuring to walk trough. The street offers us a huge amount of reference point to focus on when we walk down the road. In our mind we say we walk towards the courtyard, and when you reach the courtyard you're telling yourself that you're walking towards the turn of the street. In the straight street we would walk from one point to the other and the road wont let any emotions come up. There must me a contrast between reference points for or brain to trigger our mind to remember and witness the road.
The reason of explaining you this Serial Vision in to better understand the way people with down syndrome focus on their routing. While people without down syndrome don’t witness the way they are ‘enjoying’ the path they walk down, people with down-syndrome use this system to guide them. To give another more clearer example we will explain the way we let two sisters draw their routing down their house. One of this sisters was diagnosed with down-syndrome and one of them wasn’t. When we both let them draw the movements of their routine in a floor plan of their house, the sister without down syndrome drew her movements from the room, to the door, to the hallway, to the stairs, to the door, and to the second room. Her sister with down syndrome would just draw a straight line from the center of the room to the center of the next room. This explains the difference between the focus of the routing people with down syndrome have. "
The first step of designing this concept was to specify the amount of sight a person with Down Syndrome gathered, and compare it to that of what we gather to really get into the skin of our client.
Now we specified the amount of sight a person with down-syndrome gathered, we have to adjust this concept into the house.
To improve this phasing in movement we have to offer the person equal reference points throughout the house, so the client can guide himself in a clear way trough the house from point to point. So what i did now was to specify the sight from different locations in the house. These locations are 'more or less' the destinations of a movement.
So as a conclusion of the research we are now able to point out the reference points needed to improve this guiding trough the house.
So here we can see the final drawing, even tough it needs some slight finishments.
We can see the different reference points from the previous research are shown in a way of sight.
The reference points are as well Art as the TV-screen. So all these reference points are a trigger for the eye and mind.
Because of this the client will be able to better guide himself trough the house. So now the house is not only improving his ability of guiding himself because of his concentration, but is also works as a therapy.
