Abstract

This Pictorial documents the process of designing a device as an intervention within a field study of new parents. The device was deployed in participating parents' homes to invite reflection on their everyday experiences of portraying self and others through social media in their transition to parenthood.

The design creates a dynamic representation of each participant's Facebook photo collection, extracting and amalgamating "faces" from it to create an alternative portrait of an online self. We document the rationale behind our design, explaining how its features were inspired and developed, and how they function to address research questions about human experience.
