Owen Lowery is an interactive artist who aims to spark acts of play and curiosity in adults and children alike through creating odd interactive situations that the young and old can approach on equal ground.
He approaches his work through the concept of Universal Design, creating interaction for all people, regardless of age, height, mobility, dexterity, ability or disability. He does this by creating cause and effect relationships between several senses at one time, focusing primarily on sight, sound, and touch.
His work is likely influenced by a lifetime of being told not to touch things that seem as if they’d be absolutely amazing to touch.
