dcm160 - interactive materiality

In this course me and two others created a shape changing interface inspired by docile and dominant behaviour by exploring interactivity of materials.

The focus in this course was on shaping interactions with a material (CA) instead of adding a material to the interaction. I learned about the importance of how visual haptics [2] and tactile aesthetics of a material (CA) can influence users their experience (US). 

I focussed on building and coding, learning how to make a high-quality experience prototype (CA & TR). I learned that the interaction with a shape changing interface leans on the temporal form and computational form of an interface (i.e., when in a certain state or moving in between) and how it responds to input (MDC) [1]. Working on the realization I learned how to code for this behaviour (MDC & TR).
