One of the major objectives of the HVoS installation was to measure whether people’s perception of and empathy toward mental health and schizophrenia in particular had been changed by the installation. After people exited the installation we briefly interviewed them on camera. This video material was then channelled to three additional elements. Firstly, we took a comment for each person and posted it with their name to a "word wall” - a screen of rolling comments from people attending the installation. At the end of each day, this stream of comments was animated into a word of support and then these pieces of animation would run on screens within the installation thereby making the people attending interactive participants and an integral part of the installation.
Word Wall animation - LOVE
One final look at many of the wonderful people that made supportive comments and have become a permanent, interactive part of this wonderful installation.

I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood. -
