Abstract

Self-reflection is an important tool for understanding and encouraging behavior change for wellbeing and personal sustainability. This can be a deliberate choice, or unintentionally prompted decision. In this paper we discuss self-reflection on participating in an experience sampling study. 14 Participants wore an Autographer camera for five working days. During the post study interview participants reflected on whether the camera prompted self-reflection or behavior change. We discuss how the experience of wearing cameras can prompt changes in routines through self-reflection, and the implications of this for sustainability research in HCI.
