Velvet Spors is a communication designer, creative technologist and researcher who is currently finishing up their PhD at the Mixed Reality Lab, University of Nottingham (UK). Their research investigates how gameful technologies can support people in making sense of their (mental) health in holistic, person-centred ways, as caring systems. Within the Gamification Group, Velvet is researching how gameful technologies can facilitate meaningful encounters and connections with nature. Velvet works interdisciplinarily, and sits in the middle of a Venn diagram between game studies, humanistic psychology, speculative design, feminisms, participatory design and human computer interaction.
