    Abstract

    We propose that Information and Communication Technology should deliver a new experience to the user. We call this experience Kansei Experience. To deliver it we advocate the reliance on a new computing paradigm called cultural computing. Within this paradigm, we develop the concept of Kansei Media and how it could be implemented via Kansei Mediated Interaction. Kansei Media is about sharing implicit knowledge such as feelings, emotions and moods. We aim for a Kansei Experience, rendered by Kansei Media, which relates to reality, and enhances it to enlighten the user. To do so we investigate the aesthetics of the experience we wish to produce. Finally, to develop the concept of Kansei Mediated Experience we refer two cultures (Western and Eastern) and use famous stories from both as means of delivering guidelines for the implementation of Kansei Experience.
