      Hyperacusis Hacks: Media design ethnographic processing

            This art-essay is a hybrid format of artwork, case-study and diary reflection. The author shares the first developments of his ethnographic processing of exploring the neurological and auditory condition of hyperacusis he suffers from. Through graphic and media design techniques, he focuses on a specific case study related to his hyper sensorial auditory sense. Using auto-ethnography, with daily data collection, this work shows and share some aspects of the processing of data from cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) which the author undertook at SLAM (South London and Maudsley – NHS) in 2018. He started to use a tool for keeping track of his mood daily, keeping track of moments, data, reactions, and patterns. This collection of data created numerical/scientific outputs that the author then explored via coding to create graphics, then connecting to textual diary-reflections via creative writing. This allowed the development of a series of graphics to interpret hyperacusis visually.
