Weaving Relationships shortlisted for IxDA12!

The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) has finalized the shortlist of entries in consideration for the 2012 Interaction Awards, and we’re proud to see Laura Boffi’s impressive co-design work with hospice staff, the dying and their relatives in her CIID final project Weaving Relationships. Through a rare ethnographic sensitivity to people in the difficult life situations surrounding death and loss, the project opens up a promising opportunity space of communicating emotions that are inherently difficult to handle. The particular artifacts are designed and displayed in the actual hospice setting.

Stop by and give your vote!
