Designing for the Third Hand
Proceedings of the 2016 ACM Conference on Designing Interactive Systems - DIS '16
Cognitive impairment is sometimes viewed as a deficit limiting an individual's ability to participate fully in society. Art therapy, in contrast, is a context in which older adults with cognitive impairments (e.g., dementia, aphasia) are positioned as capable, competent, and engaged through the act of creating and sharing artwork. We draw on the concept of the "Third Hand," a practice in art therapy in which the therapist attunes to and enables the desires of the client during interaction.
