Hello, 

My name is Taís Mauk and I've recently completed my MFA in Interaction Design at the Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden. 

I believe there's a whole world of interaction just waiting to happen – one that is not exclusively digital nor physical, one that walks the line between universal and personal, that uses powerful technologies in combination with the natural world.

 I'd love to hear from you,
