Since the digital age of information eyes became major human organs. So what if their current
role of receptor organs was shifted to effector organs. What if we could write with our eyes and produce organic traces, personal inscriptions?
What could be a writing system designed for eye's movements?
Oculoscription, or eye-writing, is a writing technique invented by the director of research Jean Lorenceau (CNRS). His system uses eye's smooth pursuit movements and screens combined to eye-trackers. I realised a partnership with Lorenceau in order to initiate my project, with a prospective and speculative design approach.
Hence, the aim is to conceive a plausible and an ergonomic model for eye-writing but still based on latin script's structure for recognition means.
The eye-writing technique isn't innate and the new letter structures conceived for its purpose are unfamiliar. Therefore, a double learning process was needed. This is the Manuel d'oculoscription function's, the eye-writing Manual. I conceived a program of ocular exercices as well as a reading teaching method to get acustomed to new letters.
