Inspired by my grandmother who recently started living alone, I made this interactive experience which encourages a re-understanding of creativity in older adults, especially those living alone, and raises awareness about their mental health, by letting the audience knit digital sweaters with their communities as they follow the unique cognitive traits of older people coded into a computer program that is assisting the audience’s creative process. This is also part of my exploration of HCI, human-machine co-creation and interactive public art.
