Digitox digital seminar October 2020

The power of design: Intrusive media and design principles

Whether media technology is experienced as inviting or invading, pleasant or disturbing, may very well rest on its design. In this seminar, we discuss different design approaches and design principles that are at play when the designer crafts the foundations of our media experiences.

This time we are happy to have Sebastian Deterding as an invited guest. He works at the Digital Creativity Labs at the University of York, and is also a member of Digitox' advisory board.

In his talk, he will discuss some of the ethical conundrums and problematic issues in the current screen time and digital disconnection discourse.

This is followed by a presentation by Faltin Karlsen (Kristiania University College) under the heading "Design and undesign". 

He will discuss design principles that may inhibit unwanted use or raise awareness of how media technology influences our lives.

The discussion is chaired by Karin Fast (IMK, UiO)

Time and date October 14, 13-14 (Norwegian time)
