19 afternoon session schedule / afternoon 14:00-15:30 | (re)design of fast technologies exercises 15:30-16:00 | coffee break 16:00-17:30 | presentations of the redesigns discussion of redesigns and values implicated in slow tech concluding discussion on future directions w. odom, r. banks, a. durrant, d. kirk, j. pierce

20 (re)design briefs (re)designing aim: develop a slow tech alternative to this fast technology and report back on your design decisions option 1 – give instantaneous communication but lacks the craft and care of handwriting option 2 sat nav – sat nav gets you somewhere quicker and more efficiently but you lose the sense of achievement of finding your way option 3 clock – a clock will mean you arrive on time but it might stop you from pausing to reflect w. odom, r. banks, a. durrant, d. kirk, j. pierce

21 (re)designing considerations (re)designing w. odom, r. banks, a. durrant, d. kirk, j. pierce what might be lost when moving to fast technologies? what are core values associated with slow technologies? what does it mean to conceptualize slowness when it comes to technologies? what values are lost?
