Project description online

This work is a critique of the emergence of digital habits, and the ways in which they condition our body and spatial perception. It adopts a research-by-design approach as a probe to our evolving intimacy with new media. Digital habits can be understood as everchanging, recurring behavioral patterns (distinctly personal, yet universal) that emerge from the everyday interaction of humans with their networked and increasingly sentient environments. Upon their identification and reappropriation, this Thesis suggests a series of speculative devices that exaggerate the techno-mediation of our embodied experience.
