The aesthetics of volumetric photography for virtual reality (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Buzzo, D. (2019, May). The aesthetics of volumetric photography for virtual reality. Paper presented at EVA 2019 (Electronic Visualisation in the Arts) Florence Conference

Volumetric imaging (true 3D image capture, as opposed to left/right stereo imaging) is being recognised as a new arena for recording images of the real world. Much of the current work in this arena investigates the technical aspects of volumetric mov... Read More about The aesthetics of volumetric photography for virtual reality.

Perfect days: A benevolent calendar to take back your time (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Hassenzahl, M., Buzzo, D., & Neuhaus, R. (2016, September). Perfect days: A benevolent calendar to take back your time. Paper presented at Tenth International Conference on Design and Emotion – Celebration & Contemplation

“Time poverty” touches upon a tension between the ever increasing time demands of work and the time needed for people to engage in further, intrinsically meaningful, wellbeing-enhancing activities. At the heart of this drama is the digital calendar.... Read More about Perfect days: A benevolent calendar to take back your time.

Tracking the imperceptible: Designs to visualise time dilation (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Buzzo, D., & Jonas, D. (2016, May). Tracking the imperceptible: Designs to visualise time dilation. Paper presented at ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI)

In our project we developed TimeTravel, a design for visualising personal time dilation. Time dilation is the effect on time that movement in space produces. Predicted by Einstein’s Special theory of relativity (1905) and verified by practical experi... Read More about Tracking the imperceptible: Designs to visualise time dilation.

Designing for the impossible: Creating a mobile application to track time travel (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Buzzo, D., & Jonas, D. (2015, July). Designing for the impossible: Creating a mobile application to track time travel. Paper presented at Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2015)

In this paper we discuss the development of TimeTravel, a mobile application for tracking personal time dilation. Time dilation is the relativistic warping effect on time that velocity and gravity produces. Predicted by Einstein's Special theory of...

How to develop and maintain an on-line community of co-learners: A social media classroom (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Buzzo, D., & Phelps, P. (2015, June). How to develop and maintain an on-line community of co-learners: A social media classroom. Paper presented at 14th International Conference on Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training

The modular nature of courses and the fragmenting pressures of Higher Education schedules can make it difficult to create and/or maintain any semblance of a community of practice (i.e. one in which the discussion of learning and around learning is op...

Time travel: Time dilation (2014)
Presentation / Conference
Buzzo, D. (2014, July). Time travel: Time dilation

In this paper I discuss the theory and actuality of the effects of Time Dilation, as predicted by Einstein’s Special Relativity. Alongside this the research investigates the visible, experiential effects of most personal form of Time Travel from a pe... Read More about Time travel: Time dilation.

The shape of time: Reconsidering time in the context of pervasive media (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Reconsidering time in the context of pervasive media. Paper presented at Fascinate Conference 2013

Within contemporary research discussion in interaction design, HCI and pervasive media the word time is commonly used to represent a wide variety of meanings, concepts and dimensions. Often this is without differentiation between contradictory interp... Read More about The shape of time: Reconsidering time in the context of pervasive media.

Lost time never (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Buzzo, D. (2013, June). Lost time never. Paper presented at Inputs-Outputs | Interdisciplinary Approaches to Causality in Engagement, Immersion, Presence and Related Concepts in Human-Computer Interaction

As Nam June Paik intuits in his 1976 article “input‐time and output‐time” [11] our experience and expression of time and events are not connected to each other in a linear fashion (fig. 1). As a result the incidents that create what we decide to expr... Read More about Lost time never.
