Creating the Difference

Family in Focus: On Design and Field Trial of the Dynamic Collage [DC]

Informal care of elderly people, by their relatives, is increasingly important in our ageing population.

It motivates social awareness by connecting physical presence of one relative with attention and involvement on a distance of others.
