Aesthetics in Human-Computer Interaction: Views and Reviews

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5610)

Abstract

There is a growing interest of aesthetics issues in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in the recent days. In this article we present our literature review where we investigate where and how aesthetics has been addressed by the HCI researchers. Our objective is to find out the sectors in HCI where aesthetics has a role to play. Aesthetics in HCI can be the common interest that involves both art and technology in HCI research to facilitate from each others discipline in the form of mutual interaction.
