Dr. Natalie Dixon

Dr. Natalie Dixon co-founded Affect Lab with her creative partner Ekaterina Yudin in 2012 in Amsterdam. As a researcher she documents and investigate people’s relationships with technology. She is particularly fascinated by people’s affective attachments to mobile phones, and how through mobile practices people develop certain feelings and relationships. Her starting point for understanding techno culture has always been the body, that is, through concepts and experiences of embodiment. Often collaborating with artists, architects and other researchers Dixon uses narrative, affective, sensory and ethnographically inflected methods to analyse how various bodies influence (and are influenced) by technology.
