Ever wondered how a frequently used phrase could be turned into an interactive installation?
Graphic and Motion Designer, Kateryna Shevchenko, prompted by her Degree theme ‘Material Type: Physical Language’, picked a phrase related to design to create a physical outcome, which would enhance the viewer’s understanding of the message.
Kateryna was looking for the right tool to turn her project into an interactive installation. She explored using LEDs, but in the end decided to use projection mapping with the Touch Board, which had all the features she needed.
At the same time, she was deciding between conductive inks and push buttons. The buttons were easy and much easier to understand, while inks helped to achieve the tactile connection between visitors and her installation piece. Many people also did not expect the paint to conduct electricity, so it was a complete surprise when something appeared as a result of a touch.
