Abstract

This paper presents a design exploration research project in which principles derived from Gestalt theory were applied as a framework for guiding human-computer interaction (HCI). The analysis contained within examines how a Gestalt approach to HCI can be used to enhance engagement and promote user interaction. The concepts discussed in this analysis are supported by a series of informal user observations.
