My thesis explores the use of music as a catalyst to improve social engagement among elders at an assisted living facility. In order to increase engagement I am exploring intuitive interface.
The design is an interactive interface which facilitates participation from remote location thereby increasing engagement. The design involves the other residents, part of the art group in Menorah Park to participate in creating the interface, thereby widening the social networks of the elders and creating more meaningful engagement.
