Abstract

This article describes interface aesthetics from a trans-disciplinary perspective and reports on the findings of research into haptic interfaces through discussion of a series of prototypes and their potential as 'critical' design as opposed to 'affirmative design'. The article begins with analysis of the body - machine relationship positing human technogenesis as the framework for further discussion into humanistic computing; the use of feedback loops and live coding as artistic medium; and discusses outcome potentials such as reverse predictive practices and the notion of estrangement to stimulate thought and debate.
