Mixed Reality Lab Meeting Space
Monday 13th November 2017 (11:00-12:00)
Kristina Höök

Kristina Höök is to give a guest talk on Soma Design to the lab.

Soma Design

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.
