This project is a qualitative study of non-textual mobile communication practices in Southern China. Examining the rapid proliferation of emoji in WeChat use, we attend to the lessening dependence on a text. We use interview and observation data from 30 participants to investigate how rural, small town and urban Chinese adults creatively and innovatively balance the use of emoji and text in their communication, as we envision the evolution of emoji into a modality of its own.

Many of them encountered navigation difficulties when they first entered the building.
Working with brick-and-mortar venues to deploy and optimize printed signage within poster stands embedded with facial detection sensors. A methodology for monitoring, evaluating, and actioning insights derived from remote monitoring is proposed and tested. The methodology takes parallels from agile digital development processes to continually test and refine designs based on a constant flow of data reflecting real user behaviors.
