title USER AWARENESS AND USER BEHAVIOR IN A SHARED SPACE: Using plant as the information display
source CAADRIA 2006 [Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Kumamoto (Japan) March 30th - April 2nd 2006, 349-354
summary People are aware of objects in physical spaces to which they may act responsively. We are interested in human behavioral changes in the presence of reactive displays in shared environments. In a limited 2-week field study, using plants (both natural and artificial) as reactive displays, we observed human trash disposal/recycling behavior. We found that there is a significant increase in recycling (p=0.08) when there are reactive display with natural plants. We also noticed increase in recycling with displays with artificial plants. These findings suggest that people can and do alter their behavior in shared environments, and that such behavioral changes can be effected by the use of reactive/responsive information displays.
