IxD projects: the exploration of gestural and light interfaces, how do we interpret gestures and read affordances from the environment to gain information?

Products: selection of products that use light as the main tool to convey information: from musical instruments (Tenori On, Korg Kaoss Pad) to open purposes interface (Monome).
The use of light in public signage to thin down the information overload (DSB signage in city trains, Paris Metro physical travel planner).

from nature: already many animals (overall undersea) use light as a strong communication tool.
from art: what makes an inanimate thing looking conscious? A look at the work of Theo Jansen, Arthur Ganson, Olafur Eliasson and Jean Tinguely.
