The design process of artworks is generally considered to be nonlinear and incoherent, and there are few research papers available studying interactive artwork design processes. In this paper, a case study of such a design process is presented. Special consideration is given to the role of an engineer in a team designing an interactive artwork. Although the process was found to be very different from conventional engineering projects, traditional ideation methods were used in generating ideas for the artwork. It was also found that the role of the engineer is largely to guide the design process towards a feasible solution.
