"Design and technology affect our behaviour in ways we barely notice. It can alienate as well as reconnect, satisfy our instant desires or, in turn, help us develop and flourish. Who’s values do we design for? During my bachelor studies at the Aalto University I realized that prototyping alternatives is far more effective than merely criticizing current developments in technology. This is why most of my projects materialize in social interventions or interactive objects that can be experienced in real-life context. At the moment I am intrigued by possibilities of multimodal interaction for increasing bodily awareness and sensitizing ourselves to our surrounding reality."
