Cultural probes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


How can qualitative and emotional aspects from users be mapped at the same time as they get something meaningful in return? This case study has developed the use of cultural probes [1] with a selection of ten families with small children in the Öresund region.
The idea was to evoke thoughts about recreation and living for the probe users while providing information and inspiration to the scientist. This has been achieved through the use of collage. The mixed compositions of images and quotations in the collages are thought to give a quick and effective overview over both what thoughts the probe users have about their home life and how they live. The collages have then been handled over to the probe users as a platform for further discussions. The probes ability to work as something enriching and beneficial to the probe users have been further developed in a new way.
