About this project

Driven by a curiosity about our instinct to touch and the importance of touch to our well being and human experience I researched haptic perception as part of my MA. I explored material combinations and processes to create surfaces that engage the senses, celebrate texture and challenge the perception of felt. Investigating the relationship between actual and perceived textures, I examined tactility, translucency and opacity to create functional objects that invite touch.
