The research specifically focuses on digital experiences in physical environments and stretches from concept and idea development via prototype design to testing and evaluation.

 

The research is based on an inter- and transdisciplinary perspective, with roots in computer and technoscience, and revolves around digital technology, as well as video and audio expressions.
