Site / Fall 2013 Cancer Projects

These are final project examples from Fall 2013. The goal was to create a speculative design and deploy it for one week with a household where the users would not necessarily know the goal of the design to begin with it. Instead, the design was supposed to reveal itself throughout the week.

All of these projects target an issue in relation to cancer prevention. The goal is to have a person use the design for a week and reflect on the type of cancer in question or its cause.
