Interactive Glass at the Exhibition “Handmade – Scandinavian Glass Starting All Over”

EMBODIED SOUND: Touching the glass stimulates an inner play of sounds and light.

K3’s Senior lecturer in tangible interaction design and glassblower, Henrik Svarrer Larsen, together with amongst others former K3 PhD student, Mads Hobye, currently exhibit outcomes of a series of AIRs at the Glass Factory as part of the research initiative DynamicTransparencies. The artefacts are early outcomes of material-based explorations and craft-like curiosities from a meeting of hot glass and physical computing. The work partakes in a big-scale exhibition travelling to two other major glass museums in Finland and Denmark as part of the NF funded project, Scandinavian Glass – starting all over.

Discussing the work with some teachers and students from LNU and the glass school.
KLANG: The object responds by the sound of crystal and by subtle movements as the inner glass ball flees an approaching interactor, yet also lurks and thereby emerge from the graduated semi-translucency.
PENDL: A circle of light surveils an interactor.
TOUCH: experiencing the feeling of glass and interactive light.
