Abstract     

Personalized Peripheral Information Awareness through Information Art (Full Paper)

This article describes development of the concept of Information Art, a type of ambient or peripheral display involving user-special electronic paintings in which resident objects change appearance and position to foster awareness of personally relevant information. Our approach differs from others, however, in emphasizing end-user control and flexibility in monitored information and its resultant representation. The article provides an overview of the system's capabilities and describes an initial pilot study in which displays were given to four people to use for an extended period of time. Reactions were quite favorable and the trial use provided suggestions for system improvements.
