CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Workshop on Materialities Influencing the Design Process
Aarhus, Denmark. August 17 2010, part of DIS2010.
The use of material artefacts within the design process is a long-standing and continuing characteristic of interaction design. Established methods, such as prototyping, which have been widely adopted by educators and practitioners, are seeing renewed research interest and being reconsidered in light of the evolving needs of the field. Alongside this, the past decade has seen the introduction and adoption of a diverse range of novel design methods into interaction design, such as cultural probes, technology probes, context mapping, and provotypes.
Yet, interaction design does not have a cohesive framework for understanding this diverse range of practices. Such a framework would assist practitioners in comparing and choosing between methods across the different stages, contexts and stakeholder relations within a design process. It seems that one fruitful place to start in addressing this lack is to focus in on the common characteristic that these practices share of materialities influencing the design process. This workshop proposes to bring together practitioners, educators, and researchers to discuss and begin the development of a shared understanding around this theme
We call for submissions from researchers interested in exploring the role of materialities in the design process. Submissions should consist of a 2 minute video documentation of materialities in play in a design process accompanied by a single page position statement.
Videos should be prepared according to the following specifications
Length: The video trailer submission should be no bigger than 25MB and between 1 and 3 minutes.
Format: Please make sure that your video is playable on standard PC and Macintosh computers.
