Will Odom, a researcher at Carnegie Mellon, did a study in which he deployed 3 Photobox’s in the 3 households for 14 months each. After wading through a lot of data, he wrote a great paper about what he found out .
The project and paper was a collaboration between researchers at Microsoft Research, Carnegie Mellon and Culture Lab, Newcastle University. You can read ‘Designing for Slowness, Anticipation and Re-visitation: A Long Term Field Study of the Photobox’, here.
As well as contributing to this paper, I’m really happy to have designed something that was part of a few people’ lives for over a year, and that gave them a good experience while prompting them to think more critically about their relationships with the technologies they use, and the ways they record and revisit their experiences.
