Food for thought : designing for critical reflection on food practices
Choi, Jaz Hee-jeong, Linehan, Conor, Comber, Rob, & McCarthy, John P. (2012) Food for thought : designing for critical reflection on food practices. In Olivier, Patrick & Wright, Peter (Eds.) Proceedings of the Designing Interactive Systems Conference on - DIS '12, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), Newcastle Upon Tyne, Newcastle, p. 793.
This workshop is a continuation and extension to the successful past workshops including [4, 5, 6]. The workshop addresses the opportunities and challenges for the design of digital interactive systems that engage individuals in critical reflection on their everyday food practices - including designing for engagement in more environmentally aware, socially inclusive, and healthier behaviour. These three themes represent the focus of much recent HCI work related to food. The workshop aims to further the conversation on these themes through understanding specifically how the process of critical reflection can be encouraged by interactive technology. While the focus will be on food as an application area, the intention is to also explore, more generally, how the process of critical reflection can be facilitated through interactive technology. The workshop provides a unique forum to discuss existing theoretical and pragmatic approaches, and to envision novel ways to design technology that encourages sustained critical reflection.
