“Annoying, but in a Nice Way”: An Inquiry into the Experience of Frictional Feedback

There is increasing interest in the potential use of interactive technologies as a means to motivate attitudinal and behavioral change. At the heart of this function is the provision of feedback, such as steps taken, kilowatt-hours used, or liters of water consumed. Often, however, this feedback involves a mere visualization—an appeal aimed at turning meaning into action. The present paper suggests an alternative approach: feedback designed to create situated friction, which then inspires reflection and meaning-making. Such frictional feedback attempts to disrupt routines and to imply alternative courses of action. At the same time, it should be experienced as acceptable and meaningful. The present case explores the experience of frictional feedback through the Never Hungry Caterpillar, a device designed to avoid the energy wastage caused by keeping electronic equipment in standby mode.

A journey with our Pleasurable Troublemakers

On June, 17th 2014, Matthias and I had the chance to present our Pleasurable Troublemakers to Svenja Schulze, Minister for Innovation, Science and Research of the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia. Our presentation was part of a journalist journey that presented several projects that were realized in cooperation with the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy and Prof. Dr. Christa Liedtke. Here are some impressions of our journey.
