Abstract

The primary design and research objective of this doctoral thesis is to crystallise the potential of wearable technologies as embodied extensions of human perception which can modify the wearer’s embedded experience of space by expanding their fields of attention. The thesis investigates the possibility that embodied, electromechanical tactile cues, as a medium of multi-modal, perceptual amplification, can enhance spatial attention to help an occupant better realise and engage with the architectural complexities offered by a scene. The two primary research methodologies adopted by this thesis are the design and development of a wearable technology of attention, Sovar, and the appropriation of Room Writing improvisation technology as an interdisciplinary framework for architectural investigation.
