Design as Exploratory Tool
„Design as Exploratory Tool“ is an experimental mode of practice. It is an open-ended process leading to a conscious perception of the environment. I designed four experimental tools, which have different functions to supplement my body. These tools serve extends the sensory perception of my environment. In this context I can make discoveries on a physical level. My project intends to lead to a more conscious perception as a result of a bodily understanding. My process is experimental, hence discovery-oriented and open-ended, without a determined goal. Perception is an active process. The designer becomes a conscious observer.
