Elastic Interactions & Performing Objects
University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Department of Design, Interior Architecture and Visual Communication (DIV), Industrial Design. Harvey Bewley .

Abstract [en]

This thesis seeks to outline methods

that explore interaction when the material

object takes the role as playful

provocateur.

The process describes how simple, classic

toys provide the guiding inspiration

for prototypes. Combining the qualities

of elastic freedom and surprising movement

with simple mechanical input for

expressive transformative form. The

performative aspects of this movement

are explored and described in workshops

with contemporary circus artists

and industrial designers, with the aim

of understanding how expressive and

playful behaviour can inspire the design

of an interactive playful object.

Finally, a series of provocative and

animated latex objects use elastic movement

and ambiguous bodily aesthetic

to engage an audience in a playful and

dialogue between human and machine.

Ultimately, this thesis defines some basic

principles and methods for making

expressive, and robust moving objects,

capable of provoking new interactive experiences.

The research concludes with

the suggestion that designers should

look to the performing arts as a context

that allows provocative new interactive

experiences and a space for them to be

tested on the their merits of expression.
