Jacob Boast

Jacob Boast creates products that enable new interactions with making processes, exploring how human agency and motion control can be built into digital making technologies. His project ‘Wable’ explores including spatial wire forming experiments and design research into developing interactive tools to sense and interprets users’ movements to produce corresponding trails of wire. This experimental project explores and challenges the nature of human agency in relation to our making tools, in particular those which would otherwise be automated, and asks questions about how we can evolve digital making technologies to be more collaborative and responsive to human input.
