Eclipse is a method we developed to elicit subjective qualities of people’s experiences of and relationships with public places. Our method guides participants to sequentially explore their memories, sensations, sense of place, and stories related to a public place. Eclipse is presented in a pictorial form to make it more concise and more easily usable by other interaction designers. In this, we aim to depict the richness and qualities of the elicitations, and ultimately the subjective qualities of a public place.
