Kist Project at Praxis and Poetics

Poetics_and_Praxis_presentationI Gave a presentation on the KIST project we have been working on with the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) entitled Fabric Fobs and Family Ties last week as part of the Praxis and Poetics event organised by Northumbria University at the Baltic in Gateshead. Had a great audience including Richard Banks and Tim Reagan from Microsoft Research in Cambridge and Patrick Jordan, expert on positive psychology and design – all of who gave helpful and positive feedback. The conference was unusual in that it was accompanied by an exhibition, where the exhibits were brought into the presentations, to be discussed and handled.  Richard gave some great pointers on how we might use existing social platforms to share stories, Tim suggested embedding text fragments into QR codes to share snippets of conversation and Patrick commented on the positive sharing of the experiences of a child who was not able to communicate themselves.

The  short video we put together for the exhibition which gives a brief intro the the project. You can find out more about the project here.
