Design for Emergence 2014




This course is inspired by the emergence of applications of a new kind, such as:; GPS art, orienteering, and discovery ; E-street ; IT-hockey ; the SMS/WAP based FriendFinder; etc. The interaction between the individual and the collective is a common theme for these applications, i.e. the social aspects of the application are in focus. Also significant is the fact that some of these applications have emerged (all three GPS applications) from individual use of the technique, in the same sense that the web publishing of personal information emerged from Tim Berner-Lee's ideas of making the research databases at CERN available for researchers everywhere in the world.

This course introduces the concept of Emergent Interaction System, read more...
