In this penultimate episode of the season, we’re thrilled to bring your our interview with another familiar face. It’s Dr. Ida Toft!
Ida is a media artist who works with games and game-like sculptures, especially games that cater for not-quite-human and cross-species environments. Their current work investigates technologies for felt and mechanical vibrations such as vibrotactile motors, phone notifications and rumble in video game controllers as a case for thinking about playful companionships across normalized affiliations.
Ida holds a M.Sc. in Design and Communication from the IT University in Copenhagen and is currently a PhD candidate at Concordia University in Tiotia:ke (Montreal).
