    Abstract

    Nowadays people create enormous collections of media across different platforms and devices, capturing different fragments of their lives. For teenagers especially, virtual possessions are as important as physical ones for expressing their identity, both in the virtual and in the physical world. Connecting these two worlds presents interesting design opportunities for creating new interactive experiences, pertaining to personal media use and self-expression. This paper presents the design and evaluation of Memora, a concept designed in a participatory approach, aiming to enable teenage girls to interact with digital photos using interactive jewellery.
