In his keynote, Klaus will distinguish four theories from the philosophy of language and elaborate on dialogical conceptions of how reality comes to be constructed. To him, languaging – the process of conversing in language – is a creative and fundamentally socio-cultural practice. Language does not merely describe, it creates realities in conversations and actions. Dialogical conceptions raise doubts in several common epistemological assumptions. Questioning them could open possibilities of seeing interaction design in a new way.
Curiosity and playfulness are deeply embedded in our mind and feed the urge
for learning and exploring. It’s this behavior that pushes intelligent
species forward in their evolution. When Jan Willem graduated multimedia
design at the Royal College of Arts in London, he was fascinated by this
phenomenon and started his quest to unleash this primal source of energy.
The way we experience food is much more complex than taste only. Food is
influenced through the interaction with and between our senses.
How important is our nose and how does that influence the food and
combinations we like?
Can color change the way we perceive food? And what about sound, touch, the
setting, do they interact with food?
Let's explore modes where one will taste, smell, touch, hear food in ways
never experienced before.
Interaction design is by
now a well-understood discipline. As a professional community we have refined
the way we think and talk about what we do and how we do our work. Design is
both art and science, yet while we teach methods and practices for hard design
skills, we don’t teach practices that address the art of design, which is often
mystified as “creative genius”.
The students at TU Delft take create 5 videos that show us the results of the research they did around the topics that are selected to be discussed for this year's Interaction Design Education Summit happening as part of the workshop day at Interaction14 in The Netherlands in just one week from tomorrow.
There is still space for anyone interested in coming and working with peers across education and industry to help shape an even better education and career development path for people practicing Interaction Design.
