Over the last few years, there are more and more interaction designs that have been widely discussed in HCI community. However, most research focuses on the functionality or usability, but fewer on construction of meaning in interaction. We manifest a social computing design, Liaison Ceramic. Our intention is to unfold a new form of interaction in terms of the everyday practice through a house-like lamp, which can range from embodiment to personal meaning and social meaning. Through placing a candle onto one roof of the lamp to achieve a perceptual conversation, a user and his/her friends could be involved in at the same time, and keep in touch in the different space. The main study described the phenomenon of using our product in the life world. Besides, it’s also an alternative form of embodied interaction to enrich everyday experience. We argue that, moreover, our design itself is not a physical form used to light up only, but rather a perceptual medium to warm up the communication of users and their friends. In particular, we put emphasis on how this everyday practice provides us a new kind of user experience. We would expect that our design could be an exemplary of embodied interaction. Further, this research should contribute understanding of embodied interaction to the HCI community.
