Gaining Resolution when Creating Imagery of Aging ︎ 

Sheahan., J.

Frontiers in Sociology
Drawing on a cultural probe study that investigates the sentiments of several older Australians on social technologies, I propose ‘resolution’ as a concept indicative of the level of detail and fidelity that representations of later life have. Considering how designers have struggled to reduce their assumptions and biases towards older adults, this concept seeks to develop more transparent methods of creating such images of later life.


I acknowledge the peoples on whose lands I conduct my work, and respectfully acknowledge  Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
