Our next prototype exhibition at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, will be in December, from Monday the 12th to Friday the 16th, and will be held in the Galleria space (main reception area between Audiology and the Chemist’s), between 10am and 4pm every day.
We’ll be inviting children and young people between 7 and 17 to try out two of our heart-rate controlled iPad and iPod apps (as shown in our November, UTS exhibition), and then asking them to describe their experience and impressions of the interaction. Our aim is to learn more about the ways in which they respond to this type of interaction, the language they use, and the extent to which these interactions can support relaxation and focus (i.e. how long before its ‘boring’).
This exhibition will also be an opportunity to showcase our research so far to other staff at the hospital – and on Thursday 15th, we be hosting a reception for Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) Program Manager, Vicki Sowry, who has been managing the residency Synapse Residency program of which BrightHearts has been a part of.
