People use artefacts in many ways to support their spiritual practices. From low-tech artefacts such as books, candles and pencils to high-tech ones such as DVDs, websites and mobile apps, design plays a role in how artefacts contribute to the practices and experiences that they support. This talk will summarise Elizabeth’s PhD research and give a hint of the grounded theory that is beginning to emerge from it.
Experience in interaction design and usability assessment, Elizabeth Buie is a third-year Postgraduate Researcher in Media and Communication Design at Northumbria University. Her PhD research focuses on the design of artefacts to support subjective spiritual experiences.
