THE LINEUP


Kim Halskov, Aarhus University

Topic: The Dynamics of Creative Design Spaces

A design space constitutes the possibilities and alternatives designers are considering to meet a design brief. In this talk I will demonstrate how to use design space schemas as an analytical tool to identify how design materials and activities inform the design space, and how the design space is filtered by not only prototypes, as well as other kinds of design representation. To illustrate the approach, I will examine a sixteen-month long design process of a media architecture installation, which we documented by photos of design materials and design activities, notes, and interviews.

Kim is professor in interaction design at Aarhus University, Denmark. His research interests includes design processes, design methods and materials, digital creativity, participatory design, media architecture, projection mapping, and AR.
