Some questions

  • How to share new and old memories through objects
  • How might generational storytelling inform social AR experiences
  • How to design digital experiences that encourage off screen exploration  
  • What does it mean to craft personalized apps, can it offer a certain kind of warmth
  • Possible aesthetic and interaction design decisions to better integrate the two

Some points of inspiration 

“by learning from a traditional medium, we’ve got a new technique  for drawing of computers whose value extends way beyond simply the automotive industry of tape drawing where it originated from and can benefit anybody putting geometry into a computer ”

SVA MFA interaction design student work from:
  • Abbot device for outdoor exploration paper
  • Bill Buxton’s tape drawing –> translation of tools / physical making to digital
  • SVA Interaction design MFA project (tree rings)
  • Embroidered landscapes from Museum in Akeyuri Iceland
  • The rise of digital naturalism and outdoor exploration apps
