Our routine interactions with connected products and services result in the collection and indefinite storage of personal digital-trace data. These data are increasingly entangled with our lives. What we experience is scattered around multiple data points: our browsing history can account for our interests and worries, our messaging logs can...

Socio-ecological inclusion and the impacts of climate change on the built environment are two shared concerns central to the design and planning of the just transition in cities. The just transition leans heavily on inclusive convergence processes that are grounded in knowledge integration and transdisciplinary practice. However, there is a...

The Protestantse Kerk in Nederland (PKN) is facing a challenge due to a decline in membership, with more people in the Netherlands not believing in God than those who do. This decrease affects the PKN, losing 3% of its 1.6 million members annually, especially among the younger generation. My research aims to explore how the PKN can adapt to the...

The energy transition holds significant importance across various sectors of our lives, and the housing sector is no exception. While constructing CO2-efficient buildings can substantially reduce emissions, the renovation of older structures is equally important. Renovation plans for the latter are predominantly focussed in increasing the...

In complex and distributed human-made-systems, the intimate co-dependency between humans and non-humans can feel distant and vague. A novel approach for fostering a sense mutual care between people and living organisms can be found within biodesign, where living artefacts provide human users with functional benefits, like lighting, air purifying...

The island of Lamu is a part of an archipelago in Kenya’s southeast. In comparison to other parts of Kenya and the rest of the globe, it is a remote and rural area where residents do not have the same access to contemporary educational materials. The Kenya Red Cross Society’s IOMe005 Innovation Hub attempts to combat these disparities by...

For health and environmental reasons, humanity should reduce the consumption of animal-based products, whereas vegetable consumption should be increased. We created stimuli (drawings with texts) that may be able to increase or decrease the purchasing of mushrooms, cheese, and meat. During the design process, we identified four aspect...

While decentering the human has been a key approach in posthumanist HCI, there are still questions and tensions around it. To address them, we outline emergent notions of decentering, tracing it back from HCI to critical posthumanism and connecting epistemological developments in the humanities to design scholarship. Then, reviewing how...

Wearable haptic assistive devices can provide tactile information to visually impaired people (VIP) to support independent living. However, electromechanical haptic feedback has a number of disadvantages, including hardware being relatively heavy, large, and producing excessive sound. Here, we present a design-driven investigation of the...
