Creating a sense of place with a deliberately constrained virtual environment

Journal Article
Turner, P., Turner, S., & Burrows, L. (2013)
Creating a sense of place with a deliberately constrained virtual environment. International Journal of Cognitive Performance Support, 1, 54-68. https://doi.org/10.1504/IJCPS.2013.053554
This study took as its starting point the premise that a high degree of realism is not a necessary condition for the creation of a ‘sense of place’ in mediated experiences suc...

Enlightened trial and error

Journal Article
Turner, P., Turner, S., & Flint, T. (2012)
Enlightened trial and error. Interaction Design and Architecture(s) IxDetA, 13/14, 64-83
Human-computer interaction as a rationalistic, engineering discipline has been taught successfully for more than 25 years. The established narrative is one of designing usable...

Is stereotyping inevitable when designing with personas?

Journal Article
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (2011)
Is stereotyping inevitable when designing with personas?. Design Studies, 32, 30-44. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.destud.2010.06.002
User representations are central to user-centred design, personas being one of the more recent developments. However, such descriptions of people risk stereotyping. We review ...

Emotional and aesthetic attachment to digital artefacts

Journal Article
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (2012)
Emotional and aesthetic attachment to digital artefacts. Cognition, Technology and Work, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10111-012-0231-x
We report a pair of repertory grid studies that explore the attachment people have for digital and nondigital artefacts. In the first study we found no clear distinctions betw...

Place, Sense of Place, and Presence

Journal Article
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (2006)
Place, Sense of Place, and Presence. Presence: Teleoperators and Virtual Environments, 15(2), 204-217. https://doi.org/10.1162/pres.2006.15.2.204
Recreating real places--as distinct from virtual spaces or environments--using virtual reality technology raises a series of significant challenges. Fortunately there is a lar...

Using participatory visualisation of soundscapes to compare designers’ and listeners’ experiences of sound designs

Journal Article
McGregor, I., Turner, P., & Benyon, D. (2014)
Using participatory visualisation of soundscapes to compare designers’ and listeners’ experiences of sound designs. Journal of Sonic Studies, 6(1),
There are numerous rules and well-established guidelines to help designers with the visual appearance of interactive technologies. In contrast, when it comes to the use of sou...

Triangulation in practice.

Journal Article
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (2009)
Triangulation in practice. Virtual Reality, 13, 171-181. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10055-009-0117-2
Triangulation is the means by which an alternate perspective is used to validate, challenge or extend existing findings. It is frequently used when the field of study is diffi...

Second virial coefficient of rod-shaped molecules and molecular dynamics simulations of the isotropic phase

Journal Article
Heyes, D. M., Turner, P., English, R. J., Williams, R., & Brańka, A. C. (2015)
Second virial coefficient of rod-shaped molecules and molecular dynamics simulations of the isotropic phase. Physical Review E, 91(4), 042134-042144. https://doi.org/10.1103/physreve.91.042134
The second virial coefficient, B 2 is computed of linear rigid rods composed of m equally spaced sites interacting with sites on other rods via the hard-sphere or Weeks-Cha...

Contextual grounding in CVE design.

Journal Article
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (2001)
Contextual grounding in CVE design. Presence: Teleoperators and Virtual Environments, 14, (30-38). ISSN 1054-7460
A proper respect for eventual context of use is crucially important for the success of virtual environments destined for real-world organisations, yet is frequently absent fro...

Expectations and experiences of CSCW in an engineering environment.

Journal Article
Turner, S., & Turner, P. (1996)
Expectations and experiences of CSCW in an engineering environment. Computer Supported Cooperative Work, 1, 237-254
Existing organisational context and user expectations have a huge effect on the success of introducing CSCW technology, and should have a correspondingly strong influence on t...
