Exploration. Method. Development.
Research at CIID is broadly defined. We are concerned to break the boundaries of current thinking around the design and use of people-centered, creative and advanced technologies.
Interaction Design is a discipline which arose out of a need for understanding, developing and critically evaluating our personal, cultural and societal interactions in an increasingly technologised world. Our research in the field intends to practically develop and evaluate the nature, types, possibilities and repercussions of our contemporary techno-social condition. This includes both theoretical and an applied interests and projects, and internal and external investigations.
The Research team People is oriented towards a set of continuously revised Themes, put into practice through research Activities, such as funded research and consortium and experimental projects developing technologies. We endeavour to investigate CIID’s own Methods in order constantly improve and incubate our own practices, check assumptions, and generate discussion within interaction design and related fields. Through our activity in Labs, we practically sketch and make creative use of technologies for both experimental and public demonstrations.
In positing and evaluating new forms of human engagement with artifacts, systems, media, and technological assemblages, research in interaction design is largely practice-based, in-the-wild, and applied. What we research relates to interdisciplinary pursuits in:
- Research Through Design
- Human Computer Interaction
- Computer Science
- New Media and Media Communications
- Digital and Interactive Art
We openly invite discussion regarding our existing research projects, new project ideas, collaborations, public events and publications. For general inquiries of this type, please contact email@example.com.
