A Light Controller
Exploring how to balance intangible and tangible.
For my lighting controller I decided to experiment with an initial concept I have been kicking around in my notebook. With so many of our interactions moving to a space of intangibility, even in physical interfaces, I wanted to look at how we could design interactions that create more of a balance between the ubiquity of less tangible interactions with the intentional connections we get from tangible interactions.
To begin exploring this I built a controller that uses a collection of untethered, free moving, objects that control color channels of a light based on the distance from a central hub.
