Thesis title: Embodied interaction design
There is a growing interest in designing for movement-based interactions with technology. It originates from the notion that our physical bodies play a central role in shaping our lived experiences, social interactions and understanding of the world. This project explores the ways in which interaction design can enable full-body expressivity in social interactions conducted over long distance. The aim is to create a novel form of interpersonal interaction through a minimal embodied interface which could be used to encourage self-awareness, and pro-social attitudes. Current experimental work features two identical custom-made rocking chairs with acceleration tracking and sonified movement feedback.
