Cueb is a set of interactive photo cubes that aims to encourage parents and teenagers to explore digital photos of their individual
and shared experiences, reminisce, and exchange stories. Family members each have their own cube with photos of their individual experiences. Shaking a cube will randomly display photos on six sides. Connecting cubes by holding them together will display
photos of the family members’ shared experiences. Photos can be transferred between cubes and locked for use as a selection filter to find related photos. This generates surprising photo results and allows parents and teenagers to compare their experiences.

Affective Resonance is a technologically enhanced environment that supports participatory behavior and connects individuals through the visualization of thought in time and space, revealing the discrete network existing in users’ immediate environments.
Participants are equipped with an EEG headset enabling them to interact with a ferrofluid-based centerpiece that fluctuates according to their neurofeedback. Each participant is isolated through sound, but connected through vision as they
co-construct the dynamics of the fluid by controlling their mental states, individually and collaboratively. This neuro-responsive environment portrays David Bohm’s implicate order (1980) perceived through vision and sound in the context of
a temporary community.
