Through our visits and experiences with care homes we have found a huge amount of will and desire for guidance and collaboration around digital policies and use. Care homes have the potential to be highly creative places, and use current technologies to personalise and enhance these spaces. As artists we are committed to exploring what a creative input into care might look like, whether through designing sensory systems or creating artworks that open up the wider context and thinking around care.
We are currently collaborating with Community Integrated Care and the University of West England to understand the need and context for creative technology interventions in care homes exploring everything from machine learning to sensory design.
We are collaborating with Leeds Dementia Peer Support Group, exploring and iterating the sensory technology we developed as part of our Remote Contact Exhibition with UCL in 2018.
