WaterHCI = Water-Human-Computer Interaction
Mersivity is the 3D interactive exploration of timeline and taxonomy of water + humans + tech.
Water is essential for our survival as a species. It is necessary for our physical and mental health, for our infrastructure, and for all living creatures on our planet
As humans we must preserve the world that allowed us to be born. We must foster environmental consciousness in our scientific research, governmental policies, and culture
Technology is the greatest expression of the human intellect. Technological advancements are the best tools at our disposal to ensure a sustainable future
The drop (water), circle (human), and rectangle (technology) form a taxonomy / ontology / graph space defined by 3 double-sided axes, such as the following water-human proximity axis. It has the two sides Swim (human into water) versus "Drink" (water into human). The center of the axis denotes zero or small proximity, such as when humans enjoy water from a distance, e.g. sunbathing by the lake, or casting a fishing line from dry land, as shown below. (This is a double-sided extension of the 2015 Jaffe et al. taxonomy further developed as part of WaterHCI2022 discussion[cite].)
