Multisensory Design Probe
Technostress is an emerging and significant psychological phenomenon associated with the use of technology. As humans increasingly encounter computational technology on a daily basis, there is a need to manage the anxieties and tensions that can result from these interactions. Part of my critical and cultural computing course, I created a design probe to explore this concept of technology induced stress. The probe builds on the topic of slow technology and embraces multisensory experiences as a tool for individuals to pause, reflect and contemplate. This is project is part of an ongoing research.
This project will be presented at the TEI ‘19 Conference in Tempe, Arizona, March 17-20 2019.
