Exploring Interaction Between Personal Space and Environment
A MIXED REALITY SYSTEM FOR COMMUNICATING PERSONAL SPACES
The presented work aims to investigate the relationship of spatial environment and an individual’s personal space, based on the theoretical framework of personal space and data gathered with qualitative methods. A model is introduced to explain the relationship of certain nonverbal communication cues in human interaction, such as environmental factors and kinesics, on a person’s personal space. Also, a proposal for an interface that visualizes the personal space according to the user’s environment, and mediates the personal space based on the user’s needs, behaviors and preferences is presented in the study.
