Developing a visualized cultural knowledge transfer proto-type: An in situ evaluation in rural Namibia

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewKonferenceartikel i proceeding

Abstrakt

Youth in Sub-Saharan Africa suffers from a loss of valuable cultural knowledge, which has been a foundation for the coming generations’ survival and cultural self-awareness. By transferring cultural knowledge contexts into 3D visualizations, we prototyped and evaluated a system to bridge the gap between elders and urban youth in Namibia. The findings from the field experiment indicate that designers together with rural elders and children can reach a shared design platform by communicating visually.
