Interstices: Sustained Spatial Relationships between Hands and Surfaces Reveal Anticipated Action
Additional Document Info
2019 Association for Computing Machinery. Our observations of landscape architecture students revealed a new phenomenoninterstices. Their bimanual interactions with a pen and touch surface involved various sustained hand gestures, interleaved between their regular commands. Positioning of the non-preferred hand indicates anticipated actions, including: sustained hovering near the surface; pulled back but still foating above the surface; and resting in their laps. We ran a second study with 14 landscape architect students which confrmed our observations, and uncovered a new interstice i.e. stabilizing the preferred hand while handwriting. We conclude with directions for future research and challenges for designers and researchers.
