HomeShelf is a shelf designed to support the sustainable relationship building between people and digital content. People have historically formed attachments to their possessions and recognized themselves through these objects. However, digital content is known to be consumed more fleetingly compared to physical objects due to its ease of replication and lack of a specific physical location for management. This raises the question: as objects become digitized, will it become more difficult for people to perceive themselves through what they own? Based on these challenges, we are developing HomeShelf, a shelf for digital content, focusing on the ‘shelf,’ which is considered to have been the foundation in the relationship between people and objects.
