Author: Jayne Wallace
Bio Note: Jayne Wallace is reader in craft futures in the School of Design at Northumbria University, UK. Her work spans digital craft, interaction design and human-computer interaction, focusing on co-creative design practice and the development of physical-digital devices that have social and personal meaning to support wellbeing and sense of self. The ways in which our bodies and the objects that we associate with them (such as jewelry) represent different things about who we are and our relationships with other people have long been a fascination and she makes digital jewelry to explore how we can make things that are personal, beautiful and digitally enabled to give us new ways to understand ourselves and others. In recent years, a key focus has been the sense of self in dementia and she has worked closely with people who are living with dementia as well as specialist adult mental health units in the National Health Service, UK.
