FEEL THE VIBE
DUTCH DESIGN WEEK
Feel The Vibe
is an interactive installation that investigates the aesthetic properties of vibrations, exhibited at Dutch Design Week
2019. It explores vibro-tactile and acoustic stimuli as drivers of an aesthetic experience, encouraging participants to explore sensory parameters via a TouchOSC app.
Sliders and buttons corresponding to different vibration frequencies can be controlled by the participant, who thus optimises their experience and provides valuable insight into what we find aesthetically enjoyable (and conversely, unpleasant).
Feel The Vibe began during the Interactive Technology Design course
at TU Delft's IDE Faculty. It was re-designed and constructed by myself and other members of Vibe Research Labs
, making it a a valuable source of empirical aesthetic data. This data was then analysed by the team - the results of which were published at EuroHaptics 2020
