Beyond Sight

Beyond Sight investigates the potential outcomes of prioritizing touch and sound rather than vision as the primary mode of engaging with an interface.

This project is driven by the question of why the sensing modality of touch is important, and what can be provided by touch that vision can't offer. Beyond Sight illustrates that the experience of touch plays a vital role in the process of creative thinking. The final product is an interactive installation that has 34 different textures that are built inside an enclosure. These various textures create a maze game that helps people engage in the experience. Users can get a new experience of perceiving objects through the sense of touching and hearing rather than seeing.
