Abstract:

  • The Viscous Display is a mobile communication and display device that learns gesture and color information collected by the user. Inspired by biological systems; the Viscous Display is capable of learning, relearning and recalling a mapping from gestural, color, and corporeal input to express an output of color and motion. Shaped by principles of ‘underground public art’, the Viscous Display is conceived as a communication medium, where messages can be shared in public spaces. It combines multi-modal sensing, learning algorithms, and a moldable color display.
