DIS 2014: Designing interactive Systems

Slide16

 

I will be showing my installation Flat Dreaming at the upcoming DIS 2014 Experience Night. The demos will be held at the ACM conference on Designing Interactive Systems in 2014. The conference will explore the idea that the design of interactive systems is entering a new socio-technical paradigm around the idea of craft. The theme of the conference is “Crafting Design”. The events see the confluence of phenomena that may constitute new approaches and new foci in HCI and interaction design. The re-emergence of hand skills is evident in the development of multi-touch and full body interfaces. DIY and Maker cultures has become a wide spread phenomenon in which craftsmanship of the maker matters. Wearable computing revisits the use of traditional craft in new way and the (technologically) self-constructed self is another kind of democratic craft. Documentations of the self where we create enduring records of everything from social encounters to our heart-rates become designed vehicles for abstract mirrors of the self.
