The ways we move (or don’t move) are major concerns for health research in this information age. Sedentary behaviour has been revealed as a major lifestyle health epidemic in the western world. The studio explored the opportunities that sensing technologies and sound feedback offer for the awareness of personal movement activity.
The studio involved workshops on movement awareness, sensor data collection and sound design. These workshops informed the conceptualisation of personal devices attentive to the patterns, nuances and micromovements through sound response. In turn, these designs informed future concepts and scenarios for the application of mediated awareness devices used in physiotherapy, rehabilitation and exercise regimes.
