Clarice Hilton is a researcher and creative technologist focused on disability centred design in immersive technology, she is passionate about participatory design where the collaborators are embedded as co-creators. Her work seeks to design processes and tools to empower disabled creatives and disrupt the inaccessibility of immersive design.
In 2023 Clarice was one of six Watershed Fellows in Residence as part of the MyWorld Ideas programme. Within her fellowship she spent 6 months in Pervasive Media Studio working with UWE Bristol in partnership with Marshmallow Laser Feast and All Seeing Eye. This practical Fellowship focused on exploring the ways in which people with different Disabilities might experience and value various modalities (such as such as type of headset, controller and environmental interaction) in location-based VR, and how this should inform the design process.
