in chapter two, ‘haptic: awakening the senses’ hara presents the outcomes of an exhibition whereby he asked participants to design
an object motivated by ‘haptic’ considerations rather than shape and color. it was an exercise in ‘feeling’ rather than form.
refused the right to sketch out their designs, the contributors designed pieces which stimulated other senses and feelings
upon interaction with them.
for hara, design is about igniting the senses, using them to change our perception of that which is around us,
and how things could be.
