To promote sustainability consumers must be informed about their consumption behaviours. Ambient displays can be used as an eco-feedback technology to convey household consumption information. Elements of Consumption (EoC) demonstrates this by visualizing electricity, water, and natural gas consumption. EoC delivers three key components: (1) an abstract art piece, (2) a visual way to display data, and (3) to use an abstract art piece as a visual way to display data in order to persuade homeowners to conserve.
