Willemijn Elkhuizen is assistant professor at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (TUDelft). In her researcher-in-residence project she will explore how the materiality or material experience of cultural heritage artifacts can be captured and experienced using technologies like virtual and augmented reality. Through this work she aims to develop a new framework for material experience of cultural heritage artifacts through digital tools, building on existing frameworks and technological possibilities of material experience, and multi-sensory (visual, auditory, and tactile interaction) and embodied interaction. She will explore these ideas using historical children’s pop-up and movable books from the KB collection. Willemijn is the first researcher-in-residence who will carry out a project that is also part of Future Libraries Lab, where technology and ideas about how the library of the future could look like, come together.
