MA work

This project explores our interaction with air, and how we use it to sense and respond to our surroundings. In particular, I investigate how air could be used to enhance our perception of space, and also extend it through external objects.


I am inspired by how we are able to experience air naturally through all our senses. By increasingly operating through the lens of technology in an audiovisual manner, we neglect the other senses. However, with progressively more complex tasks, the inclusion of these forgotten senses will become essential for more intuitive interactions.
