Object & screen speculations
On 22, Feb 2009 | In experiments, portfolio | By phil
I’m very interested in how tangible objects can be used in interesting ways to interact with information on screens. This video collects together a series of experiments on the use of a range of object prototypes. In making these, I imagined a screen in front of me (in some cases a standard size screen, in other cases a wall sized screen), and manipulated the various objects as if I was controlling and interacting with content on the screen. It was more an experiment in the affordance of the objects in relation to screens than thinking of specific applications.
This project was aided by the help of my graduate students Jonathan Jarvis, and Parker Kuncl.
