The authors propose using interactive and multisensory interfaces to design user behavior change. For this purpose, they used coauthor Nikolic’s interactive art installation InnerBody, created to provoke health-care–related behavioral changes by arousing death anxiety.

Research outcomes are presented based on visitors’ observations and participant responses in interviews after interacting with the installation.
