Kristina Höök is to give a guest talk on Soma Design to the lab.
Soma design engages with our somas – our living, sentient, selves – and to aesthetics, interactions that help us live a richer life – an “awakening” from the mindless, joyless, everyday habitual movements. In this talk I will discuss how new technologies, feeding off the data from our bodies, movements, emotions and social selves, can be designed from a subjective and aesthetic point of view and why this is important.
Kristina Höök is a professor in Interaction Design at the Royal Institute of Technology and also works part-time at SICS (Swedish Institute of Computer Science). Höök has published numerous journal papers, books and book chapters, and conference papers in highly renowned venues. A frequent keynote speaker, she is known for her work on social navigation, seamfulness, mobile services, affective interaction and lately, designing for bodily engagement in interaction through somaesthetics.
