Machine Poetics Group focuses on practice-based research on technological expressiveness and its utilization in the design of products, systems, and more. We aim at understanding technology as a new design medium, and create instances of machines being a close part of us or the environment.

Augmented Human Expression – designing expressive machine systems for enhancing our creative capabilities. We prototype user interfaces through technological expressiveness, and investigate their interaction in the wild.

Synthetic Self – exploring human-machine interfaces where a computational system become a part of ourselves. We envision personalized systems that increase our cognitive, motor, or perceptual ability, where one's existence is extended through the system.

Fictional Interfaces – prototyping technological artifacts for a speculative future or now. We aim at measuring and critiquing how the relationship between human and technology may evolve and what values as designers we should pursue.
