Allay Series

These characters were created to ease the anxiety that children of epileptic parents or caregivers experience when a seizure occurs. Timers within each figure delineate the duration of two phases of a seizure (the seizure itself and Automatisms). By turning the head and legs of the character simultaneously, the child has a visual gauge for how long their caregiver’s seizure should last. 

When twisted, the square forms also communicate the distortion happening to a loved one/caregiver while experiencing a seizure. As the timer winds down the figure realigns, signifying a return to normalcy.
