The Tangible Intangibles: How can physical interfaces help us become more engaged and aware of the things we do in the digital?
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis [Artistic work]
The masters thesis explores how physical interfaces could help us better understand, become more engaged with and aware of the things we do in the digital.
It looks at three main areas of friction, identified through the initial research and collaborative workshop phase; security (logging into secure websites and/or services), everyday payments (and the way we perceive money in a largely cashless society) and acknowledging and saving work in the digital age.
The proposals take the form of a Digital Awareness Kit, consisting of three speculative objects, that each, in their distinct way, address each of these areas.
