Puddle sense is an installation that aims to demonstrate complementariness and ambiguity of human’s sense through the experience of walking on a virtual puddle. As you step, a drop of water falls to the water tank above and form a ripple on the surface of the water. The shade and sound of the ripple is magnified and projected to the your feet through a LED light and a speaker sound, which reproduce the collision effect between water and one’s feet both visually and auditory. Although you are walking on a normal ground where there is no actual haptic sensation of water, you feel as if walking on a puddle. You would wonder how the human’s sense is generated.
