Understanding Display Blindness in Future Display Deployments


Memarovic, Nemanja; Clinch, Sarah; Alt, Florian (2015). Understanding Display Blindness in Future Display Deployments. In: 4th ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays, Saarbrucken, 10 June 2015 - 10 June 2015.

Abstract

Digital displays are heralded as a transformative medium for communication. However, a known challenge in the domain is that of display blindness in which passersby pay little or no attention to public displays. This phenomenon has been a major motivation for much of the research on public dis- plays. However, since the early observations, little has been done to develop our understanding of display blindness – for example, to identify determining factors or propose appro- priate metrics. Hence, the degree to which developments in signage form, content, and interaction address display blind- ness remains unclear. In this paper we examine and categorize current approaches to studying and addressing display blind- ness. Based on our analysis we identify open questions in the research space, including the impact of display physicality and audience differences, relationships with other observed effects, the impact of research interventions, and selection of appropriate metrics. The goal of this paper is to start a dis- cussion within the community on the topic, and to inform the design of future research.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
