This project is a collaboration with Ocean Conijn and funded by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie in which we host sessions and experiments to collaboratively question and articulate our emotional relationship with technology while exploring neologizing as a tool for dialogue.

Co-creating language for our digitally-induced feels

Moving past the false notion that tech is cold and merely functional, Dictionary of Digital seeks to collaboratively question & articulate our emotional relationship, experiences, and behaviors with technology while exploring neologization as a tool for dialogue. The project was an initiative by Nadia Piet & Ocean Conijn and funded by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.

This network visualization shows our emotional relationship to digital technologies across domains. These mappings are an aggregate and fully anonymized representation of the stories our participants shared with us during our reflection experiments processed with machine learning for automated topic annotation and sentiment analysis.

Dictionary of Digital is a collaborative design research project by Nadia Piet and Ocean Conijn, funded by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, in which we’re looking to explore our own and others’ emotional relationship with technology by mapping shared experiences and sentiments.

You can read about the new words we created on the Dictionary of Digital Instagram, or website, view an interactive version of the network visualization made with here, or browse our Dictionary of Digital booklet below.
