Place (2019)

in collaboration with Emily Mullaney

A haptically joyful light to enhance the interior experience for homebound elderly. This project centers around the question: What if interfaces around the house (buttons, switches, faucets, etc.) were no longer indicative how they operated or their purpose? We used this question to investigate fundamental human movements, joyful haptic interfaces, and intuitive form for the elderly population.
