Now there’s another reason to attend Interaction14. Gillian Crampton Smith has just agreed to be our third keynote speaker.
Welcome our third keynote speaker
Gillian Crampton Smith is an educator and pioneer in interaction design. She encourages design students to go beyond technical problem solving and to think innovatively about the human potential of digital technologies. She set up Interaction Design Institute Ivrea and started the Interaction Design graduate program at Iuav University of Venice.
In his book “The Search for the Perfect Language” Umberto Eco reminds us there was once perfect language that expressed, without ambiguity, the essence of all possible things and concepts.
Every language, every technology and design approach is a take on reality, a way to frame it and understand it. Every frame comes with its own way of interpreting the world. Computers with their abstract language made people’s life complicated. Interface and interaction design popped in to ease the journey.
