Excess material is removed To reveal new object Lets start with the basics What is interaction? The listening and responding between at least 2 entities. Action by an initiation (passive or active) and a listeners reaction, which leads to the initiators own reaction EXAMPLE: Whack with stone axe
A contemporary definition A design discipline dedicated to: Defining the behavior of artifacts, environments, and systems (i.e., products) …and therefore concerned with: Anticipating how use of the products will mediate human relationships and affect human understanding Guiding the form of products to the extent that it influences/is influenced by their behavior and use The Interaction Design Groups (IxDG) definition of IxD can be found at http://define.ixdg.org/http://define.ixdg.org/
Narrative The sword and poison are but the objects in the scene The character of those interacting creates the play We understand an actors character through their behavior
Context Many variables large and small surrounding a moment of interaction effect the dynamic of action and listening. Different environments predispose us to understand similar actions differently What we see as available cultural clues within the elements we are given allowance to manipulate guide our behavior Biological realities limit our abilities and further guide us Ergonomics (physical abilities) Cognitive Psychology (mental abilities) Our emotional states perceived or real of all actors human or synthetic act as a filter over our ability to choose, communicate, listen, understand, and even act. The relationship between elements that we interact with communicate nuances which influence behavior. proximity contrast
Time Interactions cant take place without time. Time is relative. Time is fungible.
Abstraction & Metaphor Technology increases the level of abstraction from physical action to realized result. Everything using digital uses metaphor as a means of translating
Rich tool chest For understanding Usability testing Ethnography Participatory design For designing HCI – Human Computer Interaction Computer science Cognitive Psychology Visual Design/Communications design Story telling/Theatre/game design
