From Human-centered Design to Ecological Technological Development
Human-nature interaction, joining the agendas of sustainable interaction design and nonanthropocentric HCI, takes up the challenges presented by climate change and environmental crisis. In this collaborative project, we study the cultural and technological interfaces between humans and nonhuman animals and plants to experiment with ways of supporting more-than-human collaborative works.
Support human-nature cohabitation and cultivate empathy towards nonhuman users, including wild species and house plants/pets, to mitigate the impacts of climate change and build resilient ecosystems.
Leverage natural intelligence (on top of artificial intelligence) to increase information transmission and connectivity.
