Cayla Key

Cayla Key is a design researcher and OpenDoTT fellow currently pursuing a joint PhD with The University of Dundee and Mozilla Foundation. She is interested in the interplay between humans and connected technologies in a home and believes they shape our interactions with ethical implications. She is interested in critically understanding the edges and traces of these relationships across their lifecycle from ideation to creation, consumption to disposal, repair and reappropriation. Her work for the last several years has focused on breaking open the normative assumptions attached to the very term “home” and in turn the homogeneity of current domestic IoT approaches and values. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Interaction Design from the University of Washington, USA and has published and exhibited works in international journals and conferences.
