DIS ’20: The ACM conference on Designing Interactive Systems
Session: P-WIPS: Design Research and Research Interventions
In recent years, HCI design researchers increasingly involve plants in their interaction design research. Presently, there is no regulation of research with these vegetal subjects in HCI. Through the lens of Respect for Nature, a biocentric ethic, we propose the formulation of design considerations for ethical HCI interaction research involving plants.
