Interactive (art) installations as experience oriented care technology
We all know the image of an older man/woman sitting on the front porch or looking trough the window to passers-by. When they get transfered to an elderly care facility, their world gets smaller in an instant.
VENSTER is a digital window that shows places that are known and familiar for the elderly. It mimicks the initial situation and augments it. It has an intuitive interface to switch content and even one-on-one communication can take place (e.g. with a preschool)
VENSTER deliberately does not give extra information about what is seen, because this stimulates dialogue between the residents.
