Katrin Baumgarten, a designer & technology artist whose work experiments with physical human experiences. Kristin will share how a spectrum of emotions can impact industrial design and user interaction. "Today, designers concentrate just on pleasant emotions— the beautiful and slick— but paradoxical emotions can actually intensify the relationship between object & user. One of these is disgust (http://katrinbaumgarten.de/project/my-work). It especially triggered my interest because of the strong link between attraction and repulsion, which is something we are scared to admit once we grow up." http://katrinbaumgarten.de
