    Abstract

    This paper explores the relationship between personal identity and the act of appropriating digital objects in the home - specifically do-it-yourself - to inform the design of empowering products. It reports ongoing research and provides a preliminary analysis of the Steampunk movement as a case study for personal appropriation. Appropriation-identity design guidelines are provided as a result of the data analysis.
