Abstract

This paper presents our vision of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) called the "Morphing Agency." The Morphing Agency redefines the notion of an agent in HCI, and proposes separated use of all agential triggers that evoke a user as an agent. This paper describes three key levels of agential triggers that are humanlike, behavioral, and internal. We illustrate these concepts with three prototype systems – the morphExplainer, transExplainer and parasiticBelt – to identify underlying research issues.
