Cultural probes are a design research method, which
has gained prominence for being particularly suited to
conducting research on sensitive topics and in personal
contexts. This paper reports the methodological process
of designing and deploying cultural probes to
investigate the meaning of independence for older
adults. We describe the rationale behind the
development of individual elements of the probe kits,
as well as a follow-up qualitative interview. Our
discussion focuses on our experience of using this
technique, with a view to informing appropriate and
empowering research methodologies for older people.
