Challenge: Is it possible to create a machine that could capture and retransmit tacit experiences within the artistic act of sculpting, through proprioceptive haptic material engagement, from a sculptor to a non-sculptor?

Solutions: The short answer is yes, but I am going to have to prove it with my PhD thesis, so stay tuned for a long and comprehensive answer LOL.

Results: TBD

Skills Needed: everything from custom tele-haptic vibrotactile and force feedback robotics, to sculpture and materials rapid prototyping – basically all my skills lol.
