Synopsis

Exospectra is a project based around the exploration of calm technology and information visualization. More specifically the work created demonstrates how light-based “calm” devices can be made more informative by taking cues from techniques within the field of information visualisation. The resulting devices were proof-of-concept versions of the design principles explored, they strived to not distract the user but rather enrich the user’s peripheral space with information. My hope was to create a device that could emulate the ease of looking out of a window on a sunny day in order to determine what kind of weather is in store for that day.
