First International Workshop on Expressive Interactions for Sustainability and Empowerment (EISE 2009) (EISE)
Expressive Interactions for Sustainability and Empowerment
29 - 30 October 2009
In this paper we present a brief critique of the current approach to the design of pervasive computing artifacts; claiming that this in itself promotes solutions that prevent end-users from accessing and understanding the consequences of their actions in terms of energy sustainability, specifically the use of electricity. We provide descriptions and cases of two strands to be explored which promote userengaging transparency and awareness of energy use and which consider the possibility of the production of electricity by individuals. Finally, a list of articles for governing the perspective is presented.
