Material Sensitizing lab -

Please see read pages 5-6, 12-13., 21 in the article Integrating Sensitizing labs in an educational Design process for Haptic interaction for method description, results and discussion.

This Material sensitzing lab involves 3 team members that take turns playing three different roles: host, user/player and recorder. Each session is lead by a host who gently guides a blindfolded user/player through an material exploration in a sequence of 9 tactile and haptic sensitizing experiences that progressively engage all our senses. The user/player is encouraged to express their immediate reactions which are recorded in short video films clips (1-2 min) and quotes written on a chart that outlines each stage.
