What methods might they use to interact with us? This project drew inspirations from generative computer art but focused on the primary archetype of analogue visualisation - pen & paper.

The final experiment utilised an array of solenoids beneath a drawing surface, that could be individually activated to attract or repel a pen fitted with neodymium magnets. The end result was the influence of a user’s pen in its motions across the page, according to several configurations.

 The early stages of the project used various low fidelity methods to explore influencing drawing style, and were tested with different participants to evaluate their success. More developed prototypes using a configurable grids of fixed magnets enabled me to further resolve the frameworks and style of feedback.
