Poetic Interaction Design July 5, 2011

Posted by reto wettach in making the invisible visible, physical interaction design, poetic.

With my undergrad students I discussed the need of more poetic forms of Human-Computer-Interaction. Of course, light, non-permanent (in German: ‘flüchtig’) forms  for displaying data as through air flow always come to our minds. One example is the project Web Presence – Presence Web” (2009) by Michael Hohl:

“Visitors arriving at the website are indicated by the curtain billowing gently in a momentary breeze, just as a real visitor to the room would.”

This short video shows the prototype (actually, the concept itself is very poetic and beautiful, however the documentation is too nerdy for my taste…)
