I am very happy to share that my article with Peter Wilkins, “Comics as COVID-19 Response: Visualising the Experience of Video-conferencing with Ageing Relatives” was published yesterday in ACM Interactions Magazine at https://interactions.acm.org/blog/view/comics-as-covid-19-response-visualizing-the-experience-of-videoconferencing.

ACM Interactions is published bi-monthly by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the largest educational and scientific computing society in the world. Interactions is the flagship magazine for the ACM’s Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI), with a global circulation that includes all SIGCHI members. We are honoured our article (and comic!) will also appear in the print version of the magazine.

We worked on this article in response to the magazine’s Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic invitation.

I’d like to extend my gratitude to Alex Taylor, Daniela Rosner, Mikael Wiberg and John Stanik.

The comic we discuss in the article can be viewed, downloaded, shared and cited from figshare as:
