Heartfelt offers a playful way of informing people about heart attacks. Many people suffer a heart attack, but very few are concerned with the causes. The project which consists of an interactive installation and an associated application, is designed to present the information in a more attractive way, so that people have an incentive to deal with the topic. Heartfelt promotes information by attracting people’s attention in museums or at special events. The project aims at increasing people’s motivation to deal with unpleasant medical topics and make the subject more interesting and less daunting.
