Occupying Time: Design, Technology, and the Form of Interaction’ is a PhD thesis in interaction design by Ramia Mazé, Interactive Institute. She is a design researcher, manager, and educator with an educational background in interaction design (an MA from the Royal College of Art, London) and in architecture (BA from Barnard College, Columbia University, New York).

At the Interactive Institute in Sweden since 2001, she has been involved in a series of interdisciplinary and international research projects – it is this work that forms the basis of this book which is her PhD thesis in interaction design through Malmö University, in collaboration with Blekinge Institute of Technology, and sponsored by the Interactive Institute. Drawing from architecture and from Ramia Maze’s own practice, this thesis maps out and builds up a territory of ideas, relations, and examples as an inquiry into issues of time in interaction design.

The dissertation will be published and distributed by Axl Books.
