Doctor of Arts Camilla Groth

Artistic and research interests

Having a background in ceramic practice, my main research interests lie in haptic experiences and embodied cognition in design and craft, with a focus on materiality and material engagement. During 2018 I will conduct research on sensoaesthetics in relation to textiles as part of the research project Rhythms in Infant Brain: Wearables for Computational Diagnostics and Mobile Monitoring of Treatment (RIB). In Aalto ARTS we will in this project study infants and their caretakers in order to design functional and aesthetically pleasing, medically equipped textile wearables and clothing that will monitor health issues. My role in this project is to conduct observations and interviews as well as formulate a theoretical foundation of sensoaesthetic user experiences as part of the sub project conducted in Aalto Arts.
