dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores strength exercising and learning of bodily skills as a field that can be augmented through introducing digital sensory artefacts, that aim to alter the way the performance is perceived. Using feedback from artefacts that target aspects of strength exercises, this thesis ends up with a design process that explores different exercises and how to influence them. Throughout this process injury prevention through correct technique is identified as important, and this helps form the final design. The final design ends in the construction of multiple identical research products, that are used for field-testing over extended periods, without the presence of a researcher. This study is grounded in a phenomenological approach to learning as an experience based activity. The experience is influenced through interaction with an artefact that relies on embodied interaction as a founding principle. This results in a study that emphasises the user’s perception of the interaction, and highlights the most important findings that effected this interaction. The thesis puts forth the notion of trust between user and artefact as a critical aspect for influence to arise from their interaction. The thesis further fronts that after an artefact is introduced and accepted by the user, removing said artefact can create grounds for new reflections and thoughts within the user.eng
