Energy and Digital Living web site
Energy and Digital Living is based on the sensory and digital ethnography methodologies and design research Sarah Pink has undertaken with colleagues at Loughborough University, UK, as part of the EPSRC funded LEEDR project on which she was a CI on for the last 4 years.
The site aims to disseminate both the ethnographic findings and design interventions developed from the team’s work, as well as the digital-sensory ethnography methodology that they developed as a way of researching energy and digital media in the home. A number of articles have also been published that take the ideas developed on the web site into more theoretical depth (and that were part of our process of making applied research knowledge). These are linked to the site.
The site is intended to be used by scholars and practitioners from different disciplines who are interested in this field, researchers and designers interested in video methods and digital-sensory ethnography practice and in interdisciplinary work, and has the potential to be used for teaching around a number of areas. It may have other uses.
Please do forward the details to people you think will be interested and contact Sarah Pink (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions, comments or feedback or are interested in learning more about the range of potential applications of this methodology.
The Energy and Digital Living web site was directed by Sarah Pink and produced in collaboration with the LEEDR (Low Effort Energy Demand Reduction) Project based at Loughborough University, UK, and was developed by papergiant in Melbourne.
