My story with Aidan.
Influences of my project include many things, but let's start with my son as a major one. It was him who inspired me to build into this research.
We were at his mom's house one winter, he was required to do a homework assignment, which he didn't want to do. She agitated him to a certain point, and in turn, we both agitated her and she snapped at us. This caused enough stress that he could not focus on his work. When she left the house to meet with some friends, I had him do a drawing.
The drawing started as scrambled and angular, and showed his agitation. Eventually, he relaxed and ended up drawing a dragon-dinosaur thing, using clean, measured, strokes.
The way he went from a jerky movement to a clean motion says a lot on how movement can inspire relaxation. This was an inspiration as a research avenue, which only grew as played games later.
This is still a major sticking point for me on this project.
