Invisiborders: Wearable politics

Kyle Barnes, Janet Vertesi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We present the design, creation, and evaluation of a wearable technology for critical engagement with invisible borders in everyday civic life. Inspired by contestations over gerrymandering in the United States, Invisiborders engages wearers in embodied experiences of these borders, aiming to provoke reflection on the nature of political borders in daily life. We draw on DiSalvo's agonistic design and Kaye's evaluative techniques for experience-focused HCI in design and deployment of this proof of concept trial.
