Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, hope you enjoy 

Interaction Experiment

Following the conversation with Neil the other day, I had quickly made some models to help demonstrate some interaction we had discussed. This included gestural affordances, for instance, if you were to push the object away from you, the lights would fade away. 

Exploring new forms of interactions was interesting, however, I feel gestures which allow you to control the light in a very specific manner takes away the core value of what I wanted the project to be - that being exploring and discovering atmosphere, not controlling it.

Above and below are animations of interaction concepts which, although interesting, overcomplicates the project.
