Sutton House Stories
Dr Mariza Dima specialises in User Experience and User Interface design for developing meaningful and engaging interactions particularly using mobile, AR and haptic technologies.
She has worked between academia and the creative industries as an interaction designer and creative technologist in R&D projects combining engineering and design approaches. Her design approach is holistic and experiential, using collaborative design processes and viewing it as an educational and transformative experience rather than participating in it as a design expert.
Sutton House Stories is an on-going project in collaboration with National Trust - Sutton House, a Tudor house in Hackney and an important place of history in central London which explores affective storytelling for situated learning in the cultural heritage context using smart glass Augmented Reality and is developing a framework for designing smart glass Augmented Reality experiences in this specific context. She also consults on strategies for devising and developing digital projects and user interactions in the creative industries and has expertise in design methods for collaboration and co-creation.
