Abstract

Technology has become increasingly prominent in the ways that we orient towards major life events, yet there remains a focus on designing for "everyday" use that is generally agnostic towards, but inspired by, these events. This one-day workshop proposes to collect and explore research and design work that is focusing on technology during major life events such as births, weddings, deaths, divorces, residential moves, retirement, and so on. The outcomes of the workshop will include an edited collection of work that places various life events and their associated technologies in conversation with one another.
