||Tangible Patterns. The aesthetic of a multilayered interactive skin
||Pohl, Ingrid Maria
||Digital media and interactive technologies provide the opportunity to augment and alter the characteristic qualities of sensual and aesthetic perception. The visual and auditory senses are culturally predominant, but nevertheless the sense of touch receives nowadays increasing attention. This paper presents the perceptive potentials of touch sensations and their influences on our emotions. We will discuss how we can take advantage of these potentials using digital media and technology and how touch stimuli are forming aesthetic experiences. In this paper we are investigating the influence of an interactive "skin" - prototype on the human touch perception in the architectonical context.
