Be Green: Implementing an Interactive, Cylindrical Display in the Real World
2013 (English)In: In the Proceedings of PerDis '13, Proceedings of the 2nd ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays (4-5 June, Mountain View, California), New York, NY: ACM Press, 2013, 55-60 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Many studies in Human-Computer Interaction and related fields, such as pervasive displays, have historically centered around user evaluation and knowledge production, focusing on usability issues and on creating a more efficient user experience. As the trajectory of HCI moves toward the so-called ‘third wave’, new values are being emphasized and explored. These include concepts such as embodiment and engagement, complementing usability as the primary metric of evaluation. This paper explores the ideation, iteration, design, and real-world deployment of such a ‘third wave’ interactive pervasive installation in the form of an interactive, large cylindrical display. The purpose was to display the air quality data in a manner that would inspire elevated environmental consciousness and discussion among Umeå citizens, especially with regard to the environmental impact of different methods of transportation.
