Title Actuators as a Design Material
Author Asveld, Jip
Date 2019
English abstract
This thesis is an explorative, design-based research study towards the expressive potential of using actuators as design materials. Over three distinct phases of experimentation –all with their own particular aim– various sketches are developed that showcase different expressive qualities. These sketches consist of a variety of kitchen devices that are expanded with actuators. These actuators do not necessarily add to the functionality of the device, but rather to its expressiveness. The development of and reasoning for the sketches is clarified in an extensive way to clearly present all the insights that are gained throughout the design process. In the end, the sketches are discussed and reflected upon on the basis of the process-insights and relevant design theories.
