How do you design a non-human
device to interact within an unfamiliar
but intuitive way?
In a block course, lasting for 5 weeks,
we were confronted with a special task.
Create a device for ailiens.
We designed a hollow body, which
we gave a lively character. A living device,
is for the first time, something strange.
An inner membrane that grows larger
and smaller, is something that creates the
impression of a breathing object.
In the middle, there is a ball which
contracts in the same stroke as
the outer membrane. The association
of a heart arises.
With gesture control, tracked by a Leap
Motion, you can determine the position
of your hand. This conducts the view-
point, the location of the virtual camera,
in three dimensional room.
By forming a fist, you control the clock
rate and the device starts to contract
faster and more powerful.
My field of activity was basically in the Conception.
But I also participated in the codes structure and in creating,
filming and editing the video.
