Research Study

I want to explore how strange it would be if we lived life using digital gestures we’ve learned to navigate our mobile devices. A final piece could manipulate the participant’s vision using mirrors, focal lenses, etc. This project is inspired by the comedic idea of navigating our world using gestures that seem unnatural in a physical context:

A past research paper that explored this idea was “Put that there” a gestural/voice based concept to manipulate visual information. The limitation to this concept was that it needed to be done in a space with built-in sensors. I’m curious to see if this could be worn on our bodies instead.
