Like traditional media, social media in China is subject to censorship. However, in limited cases, activists have employed homophones of censored keywords to avoid detection by keyword matching algorithms. This project focusses on designing an interactive, client-side tool that promotes free speech. An iterative design process, involving the inputs of end-users will deliver a final design. In the evaluation of the design we will target the following research question: Does the UI workflow fit into context of use of the users?
Early development of children is a critical issue for young parents. However, symptoms of abnormality may occur in a subtle manner, and parents often fail to recognize them or seek help at an early stage. This is often because they lack certain knowledge or professional guidance. CDC distributed brochures to promote knowledge of children early development. However, this form of the publication contains a large volume of information and is hard to popularize. Furthermore, even though parents' role in solving this problem is significant, they could not do it alone.
Food plays a huge role in shaping our identity. We engage in food practices daily, and through these engagements, we associate meaning with these specific acts. Our research explored this theme by deconstructing cultural identity through food narratives. How can we use narrative to make sense of and frame our identities around food within cultures and across different cultures? From this research, we gathered multiple stories around a single fruit - the persimmon.
