Morgan is currently researching ways of merging the traditions of sculpture making and object modeling with rapid prototyping technology using haptic force-feedback communication and tele-touch material interaction. He has recently invented a new technology for ‘tele-haptic proto-sculpting’ that will bring the power, speed and accuracy of industrial machines to the very fingertips of contemporary sculptors. Morgan is facilitating the heuristic teaching of touch during what he calls ‘Haptic Transference’.
Working Thesis Title: “Achieving Tactile Transference Using Telehaptic Cogenerative Proto-Sculpting”.
