Jo Shin presented the paper ” Collective Wisdom: Inquiring into Collective Homes as a site for HCI” at the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems in the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow. Based on her master’s degree research on three collective homes in Vancouver, Shin offers two contributions to HCI scholarship. First, an in-depth design ethnography of three collective homes, attending to the values, ownership models, practices, and everyday interactions observed in the ongoing making of these domestic settings. Second, an interpretation and synthesis of the findings to provide new opportunities for expanding the way we conceptualize and design for ‘the home’ in HCI.
