Sensual Dysnamics

Interaction Design, using senses

Project Description

One week workshop

An exploration of interaction with an object. How do we perceive or sense the interaction and behavior of an interactive object? With this project we explored the dynamics of sensing and our senses; distance, private, public, reciprocal, smell, touch, taste, touch, etc.

The assignment was to design an artifact that can sense a person and changes based on what it senses. This must invite the person to interact with the artifact in
order to enhance the perceptual experience of that object. The result was an artifact that blows air, but also invites you to blow back and in return he reacts on this. Its an interplay of blowing and feeling the movement of air.

I am intrigued by designs that are surprising and persuade you to explore and experience.
