Physical interaction is required of the user to engage with this series of electronic products. This physical movement is designed to invoke chemical changes in the user's brain, which engender feelings of delight and happiness.

  • Products fascinate me as a method of communication. A designer can fill an object with information for others to decode through interaction with that object. My practice is focused on this transaction as a method to affect emotional change. Using reactive technology to control the physical interaction with a product I endeavour to create delight and happiness.
