Jeroen Blom is interested in how people can have meaningful and beautiful interaction with technology. One of his projects involved designing a tactile sense for multi-digit hand prostheses to allow the amputee to experience interaction with the world again, e.g. the hardness of an object or stability of the grip. During another project, he made a sculpture of a stag’s head that responded to tactile interaction by moving light patterns radiating from the artwork. Jeroen finds it exciting to see how technology is an essential part of these examples, but the experience is on a different level between the person and world, or the person and the sculpture.
