Abstract

SenseCenser is a device that senses the act of placing incense chips into it and, subsequently, the volume of incense smoke produced as the chips burn. These values can be connected to various applications, such as lighting equipment, sound systems, showing (moving) images, and more specific installations at particular rituals (e.g., a funeral ceremony). We designed SenseCenser to investigate the potential role and place of interactive technologies in supporting for Japanese funeral and memorialization rituals. This paper introduces its technical architecture and also how it will be demonstrated at the DIS2018 conference.
