Multi-mediation and artifact ecologies
March 21st, 14:30
Digiteo Moulon building (660), Amphitheater (right next to the main entry) (Access behind the PCRI building. How to get to there ? )
In this talk I will use examples from my recent work to address how we may understand, discuss and design for the current technological situation where new technological solutions are always introduced into settings where there are already multiple technologies there. The talk focuses on untangling the complexities associated with multiple technological artifacts at the intersection of different spheres of everyday life. Using the concepts of mediation and artifact ecologies I will address some current challenges of human-computer interaction when it comes to learning, appropriation and sharing.
