    GIFT: Hybrid Museum Experiences through Gifting and Play2018In: Proceedings of the Workshop on Cultural Informatics / [ed] Angeliki Antoniou, Manolis Wallace, 2018, Vol. 2235, p. 31-40Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    he GIFT project develops new approaches to creating hybrid physi-cal-digital visitor experiences in museums. Through design exploration of two concepts focusing on gifting and playful appropriation, the project charts how museums can create a deeper and more meaningful experience by giving visitors the tools to tell their own stories. The project is highly cross-disciplinary com-bining HCI research, artist-led exploration, technology explorations, and experi-ence design in collaboration with museums. Furthermore, the project gathers 10 prominent museums from Europe and the US in an action research project that both serves to ground the prototypes and framework in the needs of museums, while also facilitating the museum sector's need to become 'digital-ready', under-standing and capitalising on digital technology. As the project has progressed through half of its duration, we report on initial findings and how these have shaped our direction of progress.

    Designing Children’s Digital-Physical Play in Natural Outdoors Settings2016In: CHI Extended Abstracts, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Children's outdoor play is fluent and fluctuating, shaped by environmental features and conditions. The article reports on a project where interaction designers and landscape architects work together to develop solutions for integrating interactive play in outdoor environments. Here we report on a schoolyard trial, where interactive play technology was installed as an integral part of the schoolyard environment, and discuss the interplay between technology and the environment. We highlight in particular how the interactive technology contributed to the versatility of play activities, but also how the nature setting and the availability of natural materials contributed to the play activities around the interactive artefacts.

    Designing for Children's Outdoor Play2016In: Proceedings Of The 2016 ACM Conference On Designing Interactive Systems, 2016, p. 28-38Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Children's outdoor play is fluent and fluctuating, shaped by environmental features and conditions. The article reports on a project where interaction designers and landscape architects work together to fuse their knowledge into working solutions for integrating interactive play in outdoor environments. We report on a schoolyard trial, where interactive play technology was installed as an integral part of a schoolyard environment, and discuss the interplay between technology and the environment that was partly natural forest and partly constructed playground. We highlight in particular the importance of the adaptability of the natural environment, how the combination of interactive technology and natural environment can contribute to the versatility of play activities, and how the interactive technology can both be useful for presenting invitations to play in such adaptable places, and enhance the adaptability for play in otherwise impoverished places.

    Designing for Transformative Play2017In: ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction, ISSN 1073-0516, E-ISSN 1557-7325, Vol. 24, no 3, article id 18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Numerous studies have foregrounded how play is only partially shaped by the artifacts that their designers design. The play activity can change the structures framing it, turning players into co-designers through the mere act of playing. This article contributes to our understanding of how we can design for play taking into account that play has this transformative power. We describe four ways that players can engage with framing structures, which we classify in terms of whether players conform to explore, transgress, or (re)create them. Through the examples of three case studies, we illustrate how this model has been useful in design: as an analytical tool for deconstructing player behavior, to articulate design goals and support specific design choices, and for shaping the design process.

    Playing Close to Home: Interaction and Emerging Play in Outdoor Play Installations2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Outdoor play is becoming an increasingly marginalised activity in the urban landscape. Even in HCI, research on interactive solutions for outdoor play has largely been limited to special areas and in particular playgrounds. But children play everywhere, and especially play close to home is central in children's play activities. In this article we draw upon knowledge about designing for children's play in interaction design as well as in landscape architecture, to study how interactive play installations can be integrated in outdoor environments of a residential area. We present a field study in which digitally enhanced play installations were installed, in dialogue with the landscape, in between the buildings of a residential area. We focus on how emerging play activities made use of the installations as well as of the surrounding landscape in expected as well as unexpected ways. Based on the observations, we discuss how residential play is special, and how this affects how to design for it.

    Codename Heroes – Designing for Experience in Public Places in a Long Term Pervasive Game2014In: Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games: Society for the Advancement of the Science of Digital Games, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Codename Heroes is a persistent, multiplayer, crowd-sourced pervasive game that uses Bluetooth, GPS and the phone camera. It plays in the world around you and is always active. Players take the roles of secret superheroes, fighting for their rights and their beliefs. The game also makes use of physical objects and places in the environment.

    The game targets teenagers with a specific focus on young women. The purpose of the game is to engage and empower players. The design is informed by ethnographic studies of young women as well as by gender studies. The goal is to create an incitement for young people to appropriate spaces they do not usually move in, and try things they would not otherwise do.

    Codename Heroes is part of a project investigating pervasive games, games that are played in the physical world with the aid of mobile technology. The current research is focused at exploring large scale, long term, non-location-specific pervasive games, while still keeping the physical aspect of game-specific objects, to understand how this physicality affects the experience of the game.

    "We are two strong women": Designing Empowerment in a Pervasive Game2013In: Defragging game studies: Proceedings of DIGRA 2013, DIGRA , 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Gender-aware design is important in computer games in general, and perhaps even more so in the design of pervasive games, as these are played in the ordinary world. As pervasive games blur the distinction between game and non-game situations, they influence the everyday lives of their players.

    We discuss the design process for the game ‘Codename Heroes’ from a gender-aware perspective. The focus is on how players reacted to the experience of playing the game during a sequence of design workshops. We found that playing the game made people less sensitive to ‘fear of the outside’. The participants were aware they ‘should’ feel unsafe in unknown neighbourhoods, but mostly did not. Furthermore, a combination of collaboration with internal competition fostered a sense of empowerment. Finally, we could confirm what previous researchers have seen, that women participants tended to blame themselves, rather than the technology or the situation, for errors.

    Moving Towards a Journal-centric Publication Model for CHI: Possible Paths, Opportunities and Risks2019In: CHI EA '19 EXTENDED ABSTRACTS: EXTENDED ABSTRACTS OF THE 2019 CHI CONFERENCE ON HUMAN FACTORS IN COMPUTING SYSTEMS, ASSOC COMPUTING MACHINERY , 2019, article id panel no. 6Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As a scholarly field, the ACM SIGCHI community maintains a strong focus on conferences as its main outlet for scholarly publication. Historically, this originates in how the field of computer science adopted a conference-centric publication model as well as in the organizational focus of ACM. Lately, this model has become increasingly challenged for a number of reasons, and multiple alternatives are emerging within the SIGCHI community as well as in adjacent communities. Through revisiting examples from other conferences and neighboring communities, this panel explores alternative publication paths and their opportunities and risks.

    The Design Space of Body Games: Technological, Physical, and Social Design2013In: Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems / [ed] Susanne Bødker and Stephen Brewster, New York: ACM Press, 2013, p. 3365-3374Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The past decade has seen an increased focus on bodymovement in computer games. We take a step further tolook at body games: games in which the main source ofenjoyment comes from bodily engagement. We argue thatfor these games, the physical and social settings becomejust as important design resources as the technology.Although all body games benefit from an integrated designapproach, the social and physical setting becomeparticularly useful as design resources when the technologyhas limited sensing capabilities. We develop ourunderstanding of body games through a literature study anda concrete design experiment with designing multiplayergames for the BodyBug, a mobile device with limitedsensing capabilities. Although the device was designed forfree and natural movements, previous games fell short inrealizing this design ideal. By designing the technologyfunction together with its physical and social context, wewere able to overcome some of the device limitations. Oneof the games was subsequently incorporated in itscommercial release.

    Design, Appropriation, and Use of Technology in Larps2017In: Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games (FDG'17), 2017, article id 53Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decade, there has been an increasing interest in supporting social play through the design of collocated digital games, alongside efforts to better understand social-physical modes of play. In this paper, we present relevant insights from a well-established gaming community, the larp (Live Action Role Play) community. This community has a longstanding tradition of making use of costumes, physical environments, and objects to shape player experience. We conducted a survey completed by 39 larpers concerning how they use digital technology in larp, and the way technology is designed and appropriated to augment the larp experience. Here, we present early results in the form of a preliminary taxonomy of technologies in larps, as well as key trends for design, use, and appropriation of technology to impact in-game social and emotional experience.

    Using Training Technology Probes in Bodystorming for Physical Training2019In: Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Movement and Computing, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A promising domain technology design for physical training is as assistive tangible and wearable tools to help people understand, access, and act on their movement senses. To design these tools in close relation to a targeted training practice, we propose an embodied design activity using Training Technology Probes (TTPs). These are pieces of technology with a simple interactivity augmenting and exteriorizing cues from those senses. Here, we explain how we used existing TTPs as design material to spur creativity in an embodied co-creation design workshop that happened as part of an ongoing technology-supported circus training course for children with motor difficulties. Our contribution is two-fold: We present a novel form of embodied ideation method using TTPs as design materials. We also present and characterize novel design concepts, elaborating on three that were implemented and deployed in the context of our circus training class. We discuss their relevance in several physical training domains.

    Embodied Sketching2016In: 34th Annual Chi Conference On Human Factors In Computing Systems, Chi 2016, New York, USA: ACM Digital Library, 2016, p. 6014-6027Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Designing bodily experiences is challenging. In this paper, we propose embodied sketching as a way of practicing design that involves understanding and designing for bodily experiences early in the design process. Embodied sketching encompasses ideation methods that are grounded in, and inspired by, the lived experience and includes the social and spatial settings as design resources in the sketching. Embodied sketching is also based on harnessing play and playfulness as the principal way to elicit creative physical engagement. We present three different ways to implement and use embodied sketching in the application domain of co-located social play. These include bodystorming of ideas, co-designing with users, and sensitizing designers. The latter helps to uncover and articulate significant, as well as novel embodied experiences, whilst the first two are useful for developing a better understanding of possible design resources.

    Playification: The PhyseEar case2016In: Chi Play 2016: Proceedings Of The 2016 Annual Symposium On Computer-Human Interaction In Play, 2016, p. 376-388Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of playification has recently been proposed as an extension of, or alternative to, gamification. We present a playification design project targeting the re-design of physiotherapist rehabilitative therapy for elderly inpatients. The menial and repetitive nature of the physical exercises targeted for design might seem ideal for shallow widespread gamification approaches that add external rewards to entice usage. In our project, we introduced a “third agent” instead, a NAO robot that would take over some of the work typically carried out by the physiotherapist.  This technological intervention triggered the emergence of playfulness, when inpatients and the therapist re-signified the ongoing activity by engaging in playful role-taking, such as blaming the robot for mistakes, or for sensitivity to the inpatient’s inaccurate movements. Based on the experiences from this project, we discuss some of the major differences between playification and gamification.

    Frictional Realities: Enabling Immersion in Mixed-Reality Performances2018In: TVX 2018: Proceedings of the 2018 ACM International Conference on Interactive Experiences for Tv and Online Video, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018, p. 15-27Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a case study of a Mixed-Reality Performance employing 360-degree video for a virtual reality experience. We repurpose the notions of friction to illustrate the different threads at which priming is enacted during the performance to create an immersive audience experience. We look at aspects of friction between the different layers of the Mixed-Reality Performance, namely: temporal friction, friction between the physical and virtual presence of the audience, and friction between realities. We argue that Mixed-Reality Performances that employ immersive technology, do not need to rely on its presumed immersive nature to make the performance an engaging or coherent experience. Immersion, in such performances, emerges from the audience' transition towards a more active role, and the creation of various fictional realities through frictions.

    Communicating the obvious: How Agents Against Power Waste influenced the attitudes of players and their families2014In: Cases on the societal effects of persuasive games / [ed] Dana Ruggiero, Bath Spa University, UK: IGI Global, 2014, p. 193-215Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter describes the game design and study of “Agents Against Power Waste” (AAPW); a large scale field experiment where a persuasive pervasive game was put to use to influence households’ attitudes towards electricity consumption. This game is particularly interesting as although it was only the children of the family that were playing the whole family was affected and to some extent forced to take part in the play activity. The style of game design has been called ‘social expansion'. The chapter focuses on how this impacted the psychological process of persuasion in responding families and individuals.

    Enlightened Yoga: Designing an Augmented Class with Wearable Lights to Support Instruction2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Designing technology to support instructed physical training is challenging, due to how instructions rely on complex interactional and situational social processes. To support in-the-moment instruction, we engaged in a co-creative Research through Design process with a Yoga instructor. Together, we designed and deployed Enlightened Yoga: a training class featuring wearable projecting lights that augment the instructor's and trainee's movements, and highlight the orientation and positioning of key body parts. We present insights from the design process and a study of the class. We show how the wearable lights enabled a new shared frame of reference between instructor and trainees, that became instructable through the way participants could reference and orient themselves to it. This allowed the instructor to extend his instructional strategies, and enabled trainees to better act upon cues. We discuss how this was made possible by jointly designing the technology, its coupling with the body, instructions and exercises.

    BalBoa: A Balancing Board for Handstand Training2019In: CHI EA '19 Extended Abstracts of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2019, article id LBW1414Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Balance is an essential physical skill to master, but a challenging one given that it requires a heightened body awareness to control, maintain and develop. In HCI physical training research, the design space of technology support for developing such body awareness remains narrow. Here, we introduce BalBoa, a balancing board to support balance training during handstands. We describe key highlights of the design process behind the Balboa, and present a work-in-progress prototype, which we tested with handstand beginners and experts. We discuss feedback from our users, preliminary insights, and sketch the future steps towards a fully developed prototype.

    Exteriorizing Body Alignment in Collocated Physical Training2018In: Extended Abstracts of the 2018 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Móntreal, Canada: ACM Digital Library, 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Proprioceptive awareness is an essential but challenging skill to master. In HCI physical training research, the design space of how technology can help people to develop such awareness remains narrow. Here, we present a technological device that exteriorizes misalignments of different body parts by translating them to haptic feedback. We present preliminary insights gained during the design process and device testing, and trace the future steps of its technological development.

    Movement Correction in Instructed Fitness Training: Design Recommendations and Opportunities2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of technology to assist in instructed fitness training in collocated social settings is underexplored. Here we focus on how technology can be designed to fit within, leverage, and be part of the strategies and tools that fitness trainees and instructors use to detect and correct performance errors. Drawing on ethnomethodological approaches and using the concept of correction to focus our analysis, we scrutinize the interaction between instructor and trainees in two fitness activities, AntiGravity Fitness and Pilates. We identify social configurations and resources employed in instances of correction. We also present an analytical tool useful for deconstructing such correction processes, highlighting the strategies and resources used by the social actors, and their impact on performance. Based on insights gained from our analyses, we propose design recommendations and identify design opportunities that capitalize on existing tools and collaborative correction strategies, such as scaffolding the correction process.

    Sensory bodystorming for collocated physical training desig2018In: NordiCHI '18 Proceedings of the 10th Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, Oslo, Norway: ACM Publications, 2018, p. 247-259Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the use of technology to support physical training has been gaining traction in HCI, the design space of sensory augmentations to improve and support physical training remains narrow. To help open this design space in the domain of collocated instructed physical training, we first present Sensory Bodystorming, a hybrid ideation method influenced by material and embodied approaches to ideation. Sensory Bodystorming targets the generation of ideas that support, and are underpinned by, a rich and nuanced sensorial experience. Ideas are generated through physically engaging with evocative sensorial stimuli elicited by ideation probes featuring diverse material qualities. Secondly, we present ideas resulting from three Sensory Bodystorming sessions that extend prior sensory augmentation works in the domain. Lastly, we identify interesting research and design directions based on prior works and our own.

    Game Analysis as a Signature Pedagogy of Game Studies2013In: Foundations of Digital Games / [ed] Mark J. Nelson, ACM Press, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Teaching game studies has proven to be difficult. There is a marked difference between the fairly uniform professional and fan culture perception of games, and the scholarly perspective that most teachers will foster in a classroom setting.

    I argue that game analysis has the potential of being the signature pedagogy of game studies; that is, the practice through which students acquire theory in practical usage. However, in order to make this happen, we must develop the pedagogic aspect of game analysis, that is, we must understand how the skill is best acquired in an educational context.

    This paper is an attempt to critically examine the practices of teaching the skill of game analysis, a skill that is at the same time practically useful and conceptually difficult. Based on an online discussion with academic teachers involved in university level teaching in game studies, I discuss the methods that currently are in use and evaluate them against present knowledge in university pedagogy. My investigation shows that while all the participating teachers have developed practical and inquiry-based methods, the practices are still too diverse to form a signature practice.

    The Ethics of Unaware Participation in Public Interventions2016In: CHI4good: Proceedings of the Intl. conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems CHI'16, ACM Digital Library, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Interaction design is increasingly merging with designing our everyday environment. Trialing and evaluating such designs in an ecologically valid way often requires that they be installed in public space without clearly communicating their nature as trials. This leads to unaware participation in what, in fact, is an experimental intervention. This article focuses on the ethical considerations that arise from doing, and studying, interventions in public space, including but not restricted to interactive installations. It argues that under certain circumstances, such as when the known risks are low and the intervention presents sufficient support for avoiding involvement, active participation can be considered implicit consent. We revisit some example interventions from literature and press to scrutinize the potential risks and pitfalls associated to unaware participation.

    Activity as the Ultimate Particular of Interaction Design2017In: Proceedings of the 2017 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, New York: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017, p. 3390-3402Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the turn towards practice-oriented research in interaction design, one of the most important proposals has been the emphasis on the 'ultimate particulars' produced by design, as embodiments of design knowledge. In current HCI research, those particulars are almost always taken to be ‘things’ – artefacts or singular systems. We argue that this emphasis may have come at a cost that can be described as a loss of identity; interaction design research was never primarily concerned with the design of artefacts, but with how humans act and interact with each other with and through artefacts. We propose a complementary perspective by looking at design projects and traditions where the ‘ultimate particulars’ can be considered to be activities rather than things. The article is concerned with how knowledge needs to be articulated in the scholarly engagement with such design practices. We argue that engagement with activitycentric design gets design research one step closer towards understanding salient contemporary design practices and what Buchanan calls ‘environmental design’.

    Abstract [en]

    One way to understand games better is to experiment with their design. While experimental game design is part of most game design, this chapter focuses on ways in which it can become a method to perform academic enquiry, eliciting deeper principles for game design.

    DigiFys: The interactive play landscape2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The DigiFys project explores the design of interactive landscapes for children's outdoor play. The project combines landscape architecture with design of interactive technology, working towards designs that support children in their everyday play activity, close to home. In the creative lab session, we want to co-design the play landscape together with local children. The focus is on acquiring a perspective on similarities and differences between the children’s play culture in Sweden where the project originates, and Malaysia.

    Gaming in the crucible of science: Gamifying the Science Center Visit2014In: Proceedings of the 11th Advances in Computer Entertainment Technology Conference / [ed] Shoichi Hasegawa and Christian Geiger, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Gamification can be done for many purposes. We describean experiment with gamification that, while addressing aninformal learning environment, was not done to directly support learning. In the design of an overarching game experience for a science center, the goals were to support a focused visit, and create incitement for families to engage together. We describe how the science center environment poses multiple challenges for game and interaction design, which differ from ordinary gamification projects. We explain how these were addressed by designing for group interactivity, supporting both open and challenge-based play, and a careful combination of physical and digital interaction.

    Affective and bodily involvement in children’s tablet play2015In: Diversity of play: DiGRA 2015 / [ed] Mathias Fuchs, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The rapid development of tablet applications targeting pre-school children presents us with challenging questions concerning how this age group engages with the applications. We performed a study with a tablet game designed to teach pre-school children about emotions, studying their mode of engagement and their understanding of the game. The purpose of the study was to provide insights into what play activities are encouraged by tablet play. The study showed clearly that even though the interactivity of the game was very limited, the children understood the social and emotional aspects of the game content very well. We also found that the children would sometimes engage affectively and dramatically with the game content; we highlight in particular instances of bodily involvement with the game. We argue that tablet games offer design opportunities for children in this age range that may be less relevant for older children, by taking corporeal play around the tablet into account.

    While none of the models for computer game-based learning and persuasion that have been proposed in literature constitutes a perfect fit to the behavior observed in our study, we find some resonance in the concept of procedural rhetorics in the way the players' interaction with the game serves to complete a rhetorical argument; in this case the storyline of the game. The children's dramatic involvement may potentially serve to strengthen such arguments.

    Trust and Intimate Interaction in Nordic Larp2015In: CHI workshop on embarrassing interactions, 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Intimate play can be perceived as embarrassing or intrusive, it can violate personal boundaries, or make players feel unsafe. At the same time, intimate play can be fun, exhilarating, and trust-building. We look into intimate interactions in Nordic larp to get deeper insights into what triggers one reaction, or the other.
