Mercoledì 25 febbraio 2015 alle ore 15:00 in aula Nadia Busi presso il Dipartimento di Informatica - Scienza e Ingegneria, Mura Anteo Zamboni 7, Bologna si terrà il seminario "User Experience and the Human Spirit" tenuto da Elizabeth Buie della Northumbria University (UK).

Abstract:

People use artefacts in many ways to support their spiritual practices.

From low-tech artefacts such as books, candles and pencils to high-tech ones such as DVDs, websites and mobile apps, design plays a role in how artefacts contribute to the practices and experiences that they support.

This talk will summarise Elizabeth’s PhD research and give a hint of the grounded theory that is beginning to emerge from it, focusing on the design aspects of techno-spiritual artefacts.

 

Bio:

Elizabeth Buie is a third-year Postgraduate Researcher in Media and Communication Design at Northumbria University. Her PhD research focuses on the design of artefacts to support subjective experiences of a sense of connection with something larger than oneself.
