I designed Pain Garden, a paired zen garden that would be used between an individual with chronic pain and a family member or friend. The connected devices would react to one another through light interactions to indicate what actions the other person has performed on their zen garden. 

When the patient places rocks, which represent the pain, on their zen garden, the family member’s zen garden would light up in the same area. If the family member places a rock on the lit up area, it would turn off their light and then the same area on the patient’s zen garden would turn on.

The video below illustrates the interaction between the paired devices.
