The purpose of our work is to contribute to a sustainable and serene way of living with technology. In a world where IT is constantly present, it is important to understand this presence and how it affects us. Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) has often focused on developing new artefacts to visualize and design a future world of information technology. Now we already live with technology around us, so our role as researchers and developers is instead to enhance and embellish our ways of living with technology. Because even though we are in the middle of digitalization and have almost endless possibilities of doing things with the help of IT, there is still a lot that does not work as we wish, and some that even makes it more difficult and causes stress. We want to understand and influence this development.
