Dr. Rewa Wright is an interaction designer and artist with a specific interest in new technologies of computer vision, gestural interfaces,  embodiment and ecology. Her practice based research takes a playful, creatively oriented approach to emerging technologies, with a focus on exploration rather than adhering to previously established models. Her PhD dissertation blended augmented reality, haptic and gestural interfaces, new materialism, and agential realism to offer a new method and techniques for performance in mixed reality (MR). Rewa's work was recently included in the SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery 2019. She has contributed to several iterations of the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA), and has published book chapters on augmented reality as a social and artistic practice with Springer and Palgrave MacMillan.
