New paper formats for designers – PICTORIALS

This is really exciting, some of my friends at the Goldsmiths Interaction Design studio are trying out and promoting a new paper format that they are chairing at DIS 2014. The theme of the conference is crafting design, if you are interested please visit the DIS 2014 website.

They say; Are you frustrated with trying to shoehorn your practice into an academic paper format? If so read on:

After getting a photo essay accepted as a full paper in NordiChi were asked to help develop a new format for Designing Interactive Systems 2014 (DIS 2014). So we are introducing Pictorials: an annotated visual submission.

It is early days, a photo essay is one example of how this format could be used, but this format is at a fragile embryonic stage – so we need good people to help shape and push the potential!

About lijonsson

Li Jönsson has an interdisciplinary approach to design that engages with a diverse set of critical and practical ideas. Working at the intersection between design and science and technology studies (STS) her PhD-work is set in the context of new technology & innovation projects. Her interest lies in the attempt to move beyond the anthropocentric positioning in design by linking discussions between more recent materialist approaches at the same time as being a designer/maker. Having previously worked with topics such as energy use and senior health care - more recent projects explore computational technology and the politics of participation as a ‘speculative co-design’.
