    Abstract

    We suggest the concept of expressive forms as a rising design theme to explore aesthetics of computational objects. The theme, exemplified in our design exploration, attempts to synthesize a concept-driven design process and exploratory engagement with new forms and materials available to computational objects. We report the detailed process of designing the soft-spiky mouse including prototyping and a pilot user study, leading to a discussion about the experiential qualities and design implications of expressive forms for research on aesthetic interaction.
