Rudiments 1, 2 & 3: Design Speculations on Autonomy
2011 (English)In: Tangible and Embedded Interaction (TEI), Portugal, ACM Press , 2011, 145-152 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
This work describes the design process and installation of three speculative, rudimentary machines, or rudiments. Through careful iterations in their design, the rudiments are intended to provoke curiosity and discussion around the possibility of autonomy in interactive systems. The design of the rudiments is described in detail, alongside the design decisions that were made to suggest a machine autonomy and to provoke discussion. Some preliminary reflections from installing the rudiments in two separate households are also reported. Widely divergent opinions of the rudi- ments from the two households are used to discuss a num- ber of themes for thinking about autonomy and interactive systems design. Overall, the presented work adopts a per- spective strongly oriented towards guiding future research, but, importantly, aims to do so by opening up and exposing the design possibilities rather than constraining them.
