Experiencing SenseCam: A Case Study Interview Exploring Seven Years Living with a Wearable Camera

Publication Type: 
Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
Abstract: 
This paper presents the findings from an interview with CG, an individual who has worn an automated camera, the SenseCam, every day for the past seven years. Of interest to the study were the participant’s day-to-day experiences wearing the camera and whether these had changed since first wearing the camera. The findings presented outline the effect that wearing the camera has on his self-identity, relationships and interactions with people in the public. Issues relating to data capture, transfer and retrieval of lifelog images are also identified. These experiences inform us of the long-term effects of digital life capture and how lifelogging could progress in the future.
