In connection with Henrik Sørensen’s work on his PhD thesis three new papers have been published and presented at different conferences.
The first paper presents results from a field study of proxemic interaction in a system distributed throughout the home. The study was utilised by the developed prototype of a multi-room music system, called AirPlayer, which enables an implicit control of music in different rooms through user location and movement. The second paper follows up on studies showing that perceived proximity to our smartphones is significantly closer than reality. The paper proposes a platform that seeks to support feasible interaction design for proxemic interactions beyond the smartphone as a weak identifier. The third paper identifies four concepts of multi-artifact interaction (plasticity, migration, complementarity, and multi-user) through an analysis of two multi-artifact systems within the domain of music consumption.
The first paper was presented by Jesper Kjeldskov at OzCHI 2013 and the last two by Henrik Sørensen at MoMM 2013 and ACHI 2014.
