Beyond ICT: How industrial design could contribute to HCI research
2015 (English)In: Swedish Design Research Journal, ISSN 2000-964X, no 1, 22-29 p.Article in journal (Refereed) PublishedText
This paper takes an industrial design practitioner perspective to reflect on the articulation of ’design’ in Human Com- puter Interaction (HCI) research – one of several research fields, articulating and contributing to design knowledge. The paper critically reflects on the importance of more holistic perspectives for design activities, and the articulation of design in HCI research. We argue that industri- al design practitioners can contribute to HCI research by broadening the design knowledge and the practice within the field not to view ICT as a self-evident part of either a solution or as a tool in the pro- cess of specifying the problem or finding a solution. This may not only improve the articulation of design and design activities, but more importantly point towards an opportunity to support more socially and environmentally sustainable solutions in society.
