Digital Self, Daily Life and City Space—— Using wearable cameras for portraying our life
Digital Self, Daily Life and City Space — Using wearable cameras for portraying our life / 数字自我，日常生活和城市空间 Long Ying 龙瀛, Pai Li 李派, Zhaoxi Zhang 张昭希 We live in a world full of electric products, and we have been influenced by them deeply, especially those with digital screens like cell phones, computers and TVs. These electric products bring convenience to our life, while at the same time, the mobile-dependency is letting our times increasingly fragmented.
In this project, we’re going to use wearable camera to digital individual daily life, and see how far electric products has changed our life. The wearable camera features a built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, it can clip onto a user’s clothing and automatically taking a photo every 30 seconds. We will invite five volunteers of different ages and varying occupations to wear a camera for an entire week, including both work days and weekend days. They will be instructed to remove pictures with privacy before submitting all pictures for our quantitative analysis. After obtaining all the images, we’ll use both manual auditing and automatic analysis using API & Matlab color recognition algorithm to identify the major information in each image.
The major elements in the images including: 1)participant’s daily activities (work, eat, traffic, social, amusement, etc.) and the time allocation, 2)participant’s behavioral characteristics, like how much they eat for a meal, the way they interact with people, how they use their fragmented time, etc. 3) participant’s different locations (home, office, restaurant, park, etc.) and spatial transfer, thus we can obtain participant’s life radius and how long they spend indoor and outdoor, etc.
