Seeing what I’m hearing
Communication can sometimes be difficult, especially when it comes to affective tones, not that the latent speech patterns of communication begin to be focused without being aware of it. How do you make this implicit information explicit in voice communication? Consider a longer time that someone is talking about being interrupted in a meeting, or the affective tone in someone’s tribe. Making these hidden speech parameters visible can potentially improve efficiency and improve social communication. This form of sensory substitution can be especially useful for people with hearing problems or people with autism who have difficulty recognizing emotions.
The case holder of this case is dr. Khiet Truong, assistant professor at the University of Twente, department of Human Media Interaction. The question for you as a researcher is: How do you make communication tangible for people with autism or people with conversation problems?
During the Fillip Residencies you will work with an artist or scientist on a case for about two days a week for three months. You will join in-depth master classes from different teachers, you will learn how to pitch your idea and will get support in interdisciplinary collaborations. At the end of the residency period your will present your ideas to the case holder.
