Interfaces made using illusions
We are using information equipments on a daily basis. When using them, interfaces have the role of anchoring the human to the machine. Nevertheless, interfaces tend to keep user's attention more and more busier. Therefore, by a skillful use of the mechanisms of information processing of the human brain, I am studying interfaces that can assist their human user unconsciously, by achieving a more intuitive operation than up to now, and even more, representation devices that can provide surprise or impression, by providing direct sensations and feelings. In order to allow everybody to experience the results of my researches, I have also been striving to do exhibition activities in art museums, science museums, etc.
