Ohlala: Content-completeness, communication and emotional experience
2011 (English)In: Diversity and Unity: proceeding of the International Association of Societies of Design Research Conference 2011, IASDR'11 / [ed] N.F.M. Roozenburg, L.L. Chen,P.J. Stappers, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
Among other explorations, the field of telepresence technology has looked at ways to create a feeling of telepresence based on the transfer of minimal information. On this topic, the Cololo project has taken an extreme position by proposing the experience of 1-bit communication.
Based on the observation of Cololo in use, it is shown that content is not necessary to trigger an emotional experience. This paper introduces a novel dimension to be taken into consideration in communication technology: the content-completeness dimension, ranging from non-content to hyper-content. Furthermore, we built the Ohlala framework, aiming to explore the content-completeness dimension. Based on Ohlala, by way of a research through design, we intend to explore further the relations between this dimension on communication and emotional experience.
