The design approach was inspired from Hyperbody methodology of interactive design “that attempted to provide meaningful interaction with a participant by moving beyond a superficial one-to-one cause and effect interaction and designing a one-to-many interactive system that exhibit emergent behaviour and performed liked a living system.”
The initial concept of the design interaction developed from the movement study of interactive arms which act as robotic creatures that could react to its environment and responds to its users. In this case, the arms will serve as a threshold for the stage, which are embedded with multiple behaviours that could respond to lectures, audiences and the surrounding environment in real time. The interaction aims to form a dialogue between users and interactive components. The project challenges the notion of emotive architecture, exploring an aspect of human emotion and kinetic movement.
