“We do not learn from experience…

We learn from reflecting on experience.”

 

- John Dewey

 

 

Current Research

 

Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality in Visual & Spatial Design Cognition

Virtual reality represents an emergence into space unlike any other previous media, not just visual filters

that 3-Dimension space or illustrations of trompe l’oeil that trick the eye, but a new simulation that allows

users to navigate spaces as virtual reality comes of age- the new benchmark for first-person.

 

Mixed/Matched Design & Interaction Analytics

Can we conduct user experiences for all activities they do at work, interaction with their community?

Using spatial narratives physical movement, gestures, underlying embodiment frameworks.
