  • Synaesthetic-Translation Tool: Synaesthesia as an Interactive Material for Ideation

Lee, Chang Hee, Lockton, Dan, Stevens, John, Wang, Stephen Jia and Ahn, SungHee, 2019, Conference or Workshop, Synaesthetic-Translation Tool: Synaesthesia as an Interactive Material for Ideation at ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2019), Glasgow, 4 - 9th May 2019.

Abstract or Description:

While the subject of synaesthesia has inspired various practitioners and has been utilized as a design material in different formats, research has not so far presented a way to apply this captivating phenomenon as a source of design material in HCI. The purpose of this paper is to explore the translative property of synaesthesia and introduce a tangible way to use this intangible phenomenon as an interactive design material source in HCI and design. This paper shares a card-based tool that enables practitioners to use the translative property of synaesthesia for the sake of ideation. It further introduces a potential area of where this tool may be utilized for exploring user experiences. This work has implications for the CHI community as it attempts to share a practical way of using the intangible property of synaesthesia to explore potential user experiences.
