2 Digital Interaction: Culture Lab Digital Interaction: Culture Lab 3Welcome
Welcome to this introduction to Digital
Interaction, Culture Lab, and the talks and
activities that we will be involved in at
CHI this year.
Digital Interaction is a research group in
the School of Computing Science at Newcas-
tle University, UK. We’re based in Culture Lab,
Newcastle’s centre for cross-disciplinary digi -
tal practice, and like many practice-oriented
HCI groups our team members hail from a
wide range of disciplines including music,
flm, fne art, psychology, museology, architec -
ture, speech therapy and social gerontology. Patrick Olivier
The backgrounds of our collaborators are
far wider, which is something we actively
pursue, and we like to think of ourselves as
dynamic and sympathetic collaborators for
anyone interested in people or technology.
Our particular interests are in “making”, “in
the wild” design, development and evaluation
studies, and the use of creative practice as a
lens through which to view the relationship
between people and technology.
Hopefully some of the people or work
described here will be of interest to you, in Peter Wright
which case just grab them when you see them,
or drop us an email and we will track you down!

We spend our days engaged in interpersonal
communication. Yet, many people struggle
to carry out these social interactions to their
satisfaction. A key part of creating high quality
interpersonal connections and smooth inter-
actions is dependent on being good at sending
and receiving nonverbal communication. This
nonverbal element of communication is pro-
cessed mainly subconsciously. Ambient displays
have been shown to infuence people on a sub-
Madeline Balaam conscious level. This study explored whether
or not an ambient display could support the
sending and receiving of nonverbal communi -
cation in face-to-face social interactions. Enhancing Interaction

6 Digital Interaction: Culture Lab Digital Interaction: Culture Lab 7Expressive
Expression, “the action of making known one’s thoughts
or feelings”, relates to the conveyance of ideas and emotion
through the manipulation of a medium. If HCI is to contrib-
ute to the design of expressive interaction, it needs to explore
the nuanced spaces of user activity that expression inhabits.
In this project we study VJs – visual artists who use digi-

Guy Schofeld, Robyn Taylor, John Shearer
As a design- and performance- led enquiry into collabora -
tive behavior in public spaces, humanaquarium allows us
to explore the roles of audience, participant, performer,
and designer in the context of co-creative experiences.
Two musicians invite participants to join an interac-
tive performance, co-creating an aesthetic audio-visual
experience localized within the uncanny confnes of the
humanaquarium’s miniature stage environment.
When participants make contact with the humanaquar-
ium’s touch sensitive transparent screen, their touches
and gestures infuence the sonic and visual properties of Designing from Within: humanaquarium

Landscapes of Cross Generational Engagement
is an ESRC funded project led by Professor
Peter Wright with Professors Bill Gaver and
John Bowers (Goldsmiths) and Mark Blythe
(Northumbria). The work explores ways
that digital technologies can promote older
people’s engagement with their physical and
social environments and encourage new
forms of interaction with younger people.

Stroke is one of the leading causes of physical
disability. It is possible to recover function
lost due to stroke, but in order to do so indi-
viduals must complete specifc and repeti -
tive exercises regularly. Since rehabilitation
is a process that can take many years, these Madeline Balaam
rehabilitative exercises are ones that are often
carried out independently in the home.

Roisin McNaney
A signifcant symptom mentioned by
many people with Parkinson’s disease is
‘sialorrhea’, or drooling. Drooling can impact
an individual’s quality of life both socially, by
causing social embarrassment and isolation,
and health-wise. Saliva that remains pooled
in the mouth can become an aspiration
source, and can in some cases result in chok-
ing or pneumonia. Excessive loss of saliva can
also present related difculties with feeding
and oral hygiene.  Cas Ladha
The aim of this study was to develop a
cueing device which would vibrate at regular

intervals to act as a reminder for the wearer
to swallow their saliva. This can ultimately Roisin McNaney, Stephen Lindsay, Karim Ladha, Cassim

16 Digital Interaction: Culture Lab Digital Interaction: Culture Lab 17Designing for Refection
Digital Mysteries is a learning application
designed to explore the potential of large
horizontal interactive surfaces (digital tab-
letops) for supporting collaborative learning
and higher level thinking skills.
Digital tabletops have the unique character-
istic of combining the advantages of face-to-
face collaboration around traditional tables
with all their social and learning benefts, and
the advantages of digital technologies such
