Conceptualising Kinaesthesia – Making Movement Palpable

Methods for observing, registering and understanding movement have become increasingly sophisticated given the advancements in data capture, simulation and analysis, however there is still much to learn when questioning the kinesthetic properties of movement and how they relate to intersubjective phenomena and social flow...

Full-body movement as material for interaction design

This article focuses on the design potential of digital interactions where the body is seen as the interface. With computational technology and sensors infiltrating many aspects of our lives and urban surroundings,interaction designers’ ability to visualise and generate designs are important in order to understand and explore such design spaces...
