Abstract:Following the shift from hardware and screens into software and data, the interface between user and technology is transforming. In order to conceptualise this transformation and explore the opportunities and challenges that arise it is needed to study the process in which these interfaces come into being. This thesis will thus approach the coming into being of interfaces as an interfacing process, in order to identify implicit aspects of designing digital health tracking technologies. The lens of interfacing shows that the body is thought of as a problem area that needs solution by design. This is problematic and therefore a transformative way of interfacing bodies needs to be developed.
