Tim Ingold: On movement, skills, and design of user interfaces
Arrangementet er afholdt
Mads Clausen Institute, University of Southern Denmark
(blev afholdt tirsdag, 18. januar 2005, kl. 12:00-15:15)
Lille Auditorium, Grundtvigsallé 150, 6400 Sønderborg
Tim Ingold, Professor of Anthropology, University of Aberdeen, is visiting Sønderborg
He has written extensively about the relationship between embodied human skills and technology. He claims, for instance, that the body isn't simply a locomotive for moving around our knowledge-creating mind; bodily movement are the process of building up knowledge.
The purpose of this seminar is to bring together Tim Ingold's perspective on human bodily movement and skill with the tangible user interaction design work at the Mads Clausen Institute. Learning more about human movement and skill will help designers create user interfaces that better support and utilize the capbilities of the knowing human body.
The seminar is part of a PhD course on the Anthropology of Movement, and participants will show how they analyse short video recordings of crafts people at work.
