Aesthetic Engagement in Interaction Design
Beskrivning av avhandling: 

My research explores how to design for engagement through aesthetics of interaction. I build on a theoretical framework founded on phenomenology, embodiment and pragmatist aesthetics. Following these foundations, experiences are ephemeral and meaning emanates from our bodily interactions with the world around us.

Based on this background, my work investigates how to design experiential qualities elicit engagement. I am particularly interested in designs that emphasize a unity of mind and body and address a multitude of abilities. Balancing between physical qualities and other elements of experience, such as complexity and ambiguity, allow rich and personal meaning to be discovered in interaction. This affords a personal perspective based on one’s total being in the world: the uniqueness of one’s body and one’s past experiences.

As it is difficult to be precise about experiential qualities or split them into categories, my research heavily revolves around practice. By reflecting on design action, theoretical and practical works continuously influence each other in a bi-directional relationship.
