Name: Move to be Moved
What: Workshop held during CHI 2016

Movement-based design is reaching critical mass in HCI, and we can start to identify strategies, similarities and differences in how it is approached. Similarities may include, for example, a strong first person perspective on design, emphasising movement, somatics and aesthetic sensibilities of the designer, as well as starting from the premise that our bodily ways of being in the world are shaped by the ecologies of people, cultural practices and the artefacts we create and use. The workshop will discuss similarities and differences between specific design exemplars; ways of extending on our senses and perception – even creating new senses through technology; social interactions, engaging us to jointly explore movement or touch; endowing machines with their own ‘somatics’; as well as engaging in larger political issues around the body, such as gender perspectives, or challenging the mind-body divide.

The format of the workshop is divided into three activities: first a practical, body-based interaction, second a presentation round where the participants provide brief statements of their design and research position, their latest work and what they see as important topics on an agenda for the future, and third a brainstorming activity to collect an agenda for continued Move to be Moved activities and joint research explorations for the future.

To participate, please submit a 2-page position statement to the workshop organiser, Kristina Höök, [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]><mailto:[log in to unmask]>. If accepted, at least one of the authors has to attend the workshop and register for at least one day of the CHI-conference.
