Title Exploring Slow Technology in the Home
Author Krogh, Martin
Date 2015
English abstract
In the present thesis a landscape of slow technology in the domestic home is explored to contrast the prevailing fast paced constant-on-and-connected devices of today. Through 3 technology probes (provotypes) deployed in 7 different homes, different parts of this landscape has been unfolded showing what slow technology might mean for interaction designers, from the user perspective, and what potentials it might carry. Potentials include delaying the availability of our devices, working with different layers of intrusiveness, looking into the distant future, and the introduction of small rituals, and routines in our everyday life. As a methodological contribution the novel hybrid slow provotype is proposed.
