Sindhu Giri

I studied Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden to expand my knowledge of Scandinavian design and my practice as an interaction designer. Through an HCI course called Embodied Interaction, I was exposed to phenomenology theory—the study of consciousness and experience. For the first time as a designer, I applied philosophical discussion to research—in the form of field studies, bodystorming, etc. My class was taught to observe and simulate experiences before designing artifacts to facilitate them.
