Immersive Interface for Curatorial Collections
Interaction design researcher on research project exploring immersive ‘feedback’ environments for exhibiting and dramatically interacting with semiotic, aesthetic and emotional patterns in archived imagery. My contribution to the project was the production and use of design tools, including movement-oriented personas and scenarios, scripts for scenario enactment in user testing, the application of Labanotation for spatial movement schemas, and a tool for mapping interaction in terms of the resources available to both human and machine for interpretation of the action (based on Suchman’s analytic framework). These tools enabled a strong user focus throughout the development in an otherwise traditional multimedia production process.
