Abstract

This paper describes an approach to analyzing interpretation of a kind of dynamic, metaphorical interface, which shows contingent changes over time provoking imagination and reflection, so named “lively”. Grounded in the concept of animacy, blending theory, and embodied interaction, the approach integrates interpretive analyses with empirical studies. It includes a protocol of cognitive processes in two stages of use facilitating researchers to speculate the user experience of a lively artifact, to craft interview questions inviting participants to retrospectively express their thoughts and feelings during use, and finally to summarize possible interpretations constituting verisimilar design narratives. To demonstrate, three exemplary lively artifacts are examined in the laboratory.
