Aesthetics of Interaction



In traditional product design, aesthetics only considered the appearance of the product. Products were designed to look beautiful. As products become more interactive, this requires a consideration of the aesthetics of the interaction with the user. This course introduces students to methods, models and research that consider the aesthetics of interaction and students learn to apply these methods models and insights in the design of an interactive product. Consequently, students will develop an awareness and understanding of the factors that influence the aesthetics of product interaction, and the interplay between bodily skills and the expressive capabilities of physical objects.
