In this article we explore issues of embodied control that relate to current and future technologies in which body movements function as an instrument of control. Instead of just seeing ourselves in control, it is time to consider how these technologies actually control our moving bodies and transform our lived spaces. By shifting the focus from devices to choreographies among devices, we perform a theoretical analysis of the multidimensional aspects that reside within embodied interaction with technology. We suggest that it is beneficial to acknowledge and reformulate the phenomena of embodied control that go beyond the instrumental user-to-device control scheme. Drawing upon the phenomenology of the body, ecological psychology, and embodied cognitive science, we identify three different dimensions of embodied control: instrumental, experiential, and infrastructural. Design implications of this theoretical model are also discussed.

Parviainen, Jaana; Tuuri, Kai; Pirhonen, Antti; Turunen, Markku; Keskinen, Tuuli (Tilburg University, 2013)In the traditional use-oriented approach, only a fraction of gestures are taken as relevant to interaction. In this paper we argue that gestures should not be handled only as isolated objects of application use, but ...
Drifting Down the Technologization of Life: Could Choreography-Based Interaction Design Support us in Engaging with the World and our Embodied Living? Parviainen, Jaana; Tuuri, Kai; Pirhonen, Antti (MDPI AG, 2013)The development of interactive technology is often based on the assumption of need to reduce the physical action and cognitive load of the user. However, recent conceptualizations, supported by research in various fields ...
