HIVK01011U Cph: Interactive Mediation spaces - Elective and constituent A1
Informationsvidenskab og kulturformidling, STO 2016
Architecture, layout and interaction design fundamentally influence how people can communicate, interact and collaborate in physical, digital, and hybrid mediation spaces. Information and culture are mediated in such spaces, which include urban spaces, libraries, museums, companies, web sites, social media and new types of locative, virtual and augmented reality interfaces. A central part of the course will be workshops, where theories on affordances, interactivity, mediation, collaboration, coordination, etc. are applied to different types of mediation spaces investigated by the students.
Examples of course contents:
- affordances for serendipity in mediation spaces, space syntax, topology, affordances for traversal
- sensory affordances, creativity stimulation, architectural psychology, the city as an interface
- co-located and distributed collaboration in mediation spaces, articulation work, mobility work
- awareness, communicative coordination, coordination mechanisms, (work) rhythms
