Overcoming culture shock

Overcoming culture shock

The goal of my M2.2 graduation project is to investigate how asynchronous communication tools and awareness of each other daily routines can minimize the effects of culture shock between sojourner and distant family.

As context for this project I choose young Chinese expats living in the Netherlands. I conducted various interviews, focus group and survey. Currently I am in the process of deploying a technology probe to test various assumptions. I will exhibit this prototype during upcoming interim exhibition.
