Lifelogging in the Wild: Participant Experiences of Using Lifelogging as a Research Tool

Abstract : Research in the wild has emerged in HCI as a way of studying participant experiences in natural environments. Also, lifelogging tools such as physiological sensors have become more feasible for gathering data continuously in the wild. This could complement traditional in-waves approaches such as observations and interviews. Given the emerging nature of sensors, few studies have employed these in the wild. We extend previous work by exploring the use of a physiological sensor and camera to examine how participants appropriate and experience wearing these. Participants were engaged in viewing the photos taken during the day and used the sensor and camera data to recall details about their daily experiences and reflect on these. However, participants also went through some efforts in making the camera blend into the environment in order not to break social norms.
