Research Abstract

Recent advances in material science and ubiquitous computing have intrigued HCI scholars to adopt materiality as a new lens to see the next wave of human-computer interaction where the digital and physical world become entangled. Despite the theoretical flourishing, the practical designerly processes and concrete cases of addressing this emerging sphere of research are still in scarcity. This PhD strives to bring external HCI knowledges and technologies from material science and computer science to the creation of materiality practices from a designerly perspective.   

Expected Contributions

The expected contributions of this PhD study are twofold. First, it is to give a clear definition of interactive materiality with concrete design instances. Secondly, it is to offer intermediate level knowledge in terms of e.g., illustrative design guides, typological understandings of interactive materiality, and/or designerly methods and tools for operation.
