• An Understanding of Grief in a Socially Networked World

      Cushing, Justin (2020-05)
      Grief is a strong emotion that affects the lives of those experiencing it. Through technology, grief is no longer confined in its expression. Messages from those grieving are shared through websites, blogs, and social media networks. This project took personal experience with grief to examine some of the relationships between that grief, design principles, and the researched understandings. It started with the creation of a grief blog, meant to capture personal understandings of grief at a point in time. Those posts were then better understood through the lens of research studies.
