Storytelling for older adults' well-being
...storytelling, health, well-being!
In recent years storytelling has emerged as a valuable medium for supporting health and well-being of older adults. This project focuses on the use of visual storytelling methods for designing and evaluating tools and services specifically created for the elderly, with the aim of assisting them in improving and maintaining their sense of belonging, self-worth, and social connectedness. In particular, we investigate the potential of storytelling as a practical medium in the co-design process involving older adults.
...visualization, sustainability, temporal!
As part of this ongoing project, we have been developing visualizations that allow ordinary people to monitor their energy usage over time, and make historic and normative comparisons. The aim is to better support users in changing their energy consumption behaviour by understaning how and when they use energy.
Games and visualizations for health
...serious games, visualizations, health!
This project investigates the use of serious games and visualizations for the promotion of community health, particularly in remote and under-resourced regions of the world, such as Amazonia.
