title = "Probing the recreational home –The cultural probe as a communicative tool for researcher and user",
abstract = "How can qualitative, ethnographic and emotional aspects from probe users be mapped at the same time as they get something meaningful in return? The emphasis is here on intellectual rewards during probe work rather than future good designs that in a long term perspective can be beneficial for the probe user. This case study has elaborated the traditional use of cultural probes [1] with a selection of ten families with small children in the {\"O}resund 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 partly through the use of collages. 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 elaborated in a new way.",
