TOUCHING THE "VOID"
An interactive experience about spatial recognition and sensory perception.
It displays virtual objects on a physical pedestal and uses vibration gloves to create the haptic sensation when the audience interacts with the virtual object. The data of user’s finger position is tracked by a LeapMotion embedded in the pedestal, then fed to Arduino to activate the corresponding vibration motors beneath fingertips. The project investigates how can an audience form the impression of an object in their mind without the physical agent of it in reality. Therefore, the object takes on a presence when it is being interacted with by people who are wearing the haptic gloves. By limiting and distorting the sensory input, the audience’s cognition of a space has changed. It signifies a space which is neither not-empty nor not-full, and raises the discussion of reconstructing the reality.
