About the course

This course is offered as part of a programme:

Interaction Design, Master's Programme (One-Year)

Course content

This course identifies Embodied Interaction as an important subfield of Interaction Design.

Building on the starting point of embodied interaction as an umbrella for physical computing, wearables, haptics and tangible interactions, this course:

1. redefines embodiment in terms of materiality and asks for an awareness of whose bodies and what bodies are designed;

2. opens critical engagement with contemporary politics and economics;

3. fosters awareness and experimentation of methodologies, including experimental prototyping, performative and critical approaches to design in heterogeneous design situations.

4. requires an engagement with interdisciplinary scholarly writing
