In this talk Dr Sumartojo will discuss ways of thinking about how the design of the specific sites and practices of healthcare settings contribute to forms of wellbeing.  Taking as a starting point the contribution of spatial surroundings to clinical outcomes, she will discuss how they can be investigated using visual methods that attend to how people perceive, sense and understand their surroundings.   The talk will draw on examples from a recent study in a regional Psychiatric Inpatient Unit where Dr Sumartojo collaborated on a study that used such techniques.  She will explain why the design of our surroundings is important, how we can research the experience of these surroundings and ways that people intervene or improvise in their spatial surroundings to make them feel better.
