Item Type: MRP
Creators: Wang, George
Abstract:

Nostalgia as a longing for home, where we feel a deeper sense of connectedness and a slower sense of time. Today’s heightened nostalgia is due to modernization, which created an environment where people are lonelier and more pressed for time– which have significant implications for well-being -- than people living in societies that are not as affluent or have not adopted the modern way of living. As the characteristics of modern society persist into the future, there will be increasing need to foster resilience among people. Nostalgia is a vehicle that can be used in experience design to transport positive feelings from the past into the present and improve psychological resilience. Deliverables include heuristics for leveraging nostalgia in experience design and a workshop guide that facilitates the design of nostalgic experiences.
