My research is about developing Interaction Design as a material practice. I understand the computer as a material for design and experiment with it as such with the aim of creating new material expressions for computational things. Through this practice I also seek to deepen our understanding of the trinity of forms in Interaction Design: the physical form, the temporal form, and the interaction gestalt.
