Research Interest
Modern society requires reform in its relationship with nature, which has been damaged in the process of urbanization. This study extends the subject of HCI from countable people, objects, pets, plants to their sounding environment, which is uncountable, complex, and non-linguistic. In doing so, we can listen and feel the telepresence of the global ecological system, thus integrating all living beings and their relationships, including their interaction with the biosphere, without causing environmental destruction. Therefore, this can become the relationship solution to the problem of man and nature.This research is not intended to propose a solution to any one single problem. Rather, it proposes a new view of ecology based design, interfaces and practices to support our future society in a multidisciplinary approach.
