    Artefacts for understanding2004In: Proceedings for Research into Practice Conference, University of Hertfordshire, 2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses two aspects of artefacts in the design process. The fi rst is how artefacts can be used to inform researchers about people’s context, desires, concerns, needs and constraints. The second is how artefacts can facilitate the construction of shared knowledge that is needed during multidisciplinary research projects. Theses two ways of looking at artefacts will be discussed mainly through the empirical material of the interLiving project, a 3-year multidisciplinary cooperative design technology development project and also through several cooperative design workshops conducted at CID, Centre for User Oriented IT Design.

    The struggles of co-creation: the highs and lows of involving stakeholders into the service design process2013In: Collaborative Systems for Reindustrialization: 14th IFIP WG 5.5 Working Conference on Virtual Enterprises, PRO-VE 2013, Dresden, Germany, September 30 – October 2, 2013, Proceedings / [ed] Camarinha-Matos, Luis M., Scherer, Raimar J., Berlin, 2013, p. 415-422Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents our experiences from a research project on how to co-develop new methods for idea generation within a service design practice. As an example the paper describes how service designers used two visual inquiry methods together with customers and employees in different service situations. The results show that that there is great potential in developing methods for co-design work based on design approaches. This project relies on a mindset where materials of different kinds, that can be organized and reorganized in different ways are used. This supports a way of creating knowledge that facilitates production of other results than the purely verbal. We have also realized that it requires a great amount of work to achieve a great result.

    Design space conceptual tool: Grasping the design process2005In: ‘In the Making´: Proceedings for Nordes, the Nordic Design Research Conference, 2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article concerns an alternative and relatively simple model of the design process that can be used as a conceptual tool for designing a design process. Three different examples are used to test and show the model’s relevance. This model takes a quite different turn on the process: instead of describing the process as if it would start from a problem, it suggests that it is actually the solutions that are actively used when designing. These possible solutions are referred to as the ‘design space’. The article also provides a methodological framework for understanding the different approaches with which methods can be used. Here the concepts ‘explorative’ and ‘experimental’ are essential. Finally some aspects of ‘constraints’ are discussed in relation to the design space. The model can be used for refl ecting on as well as designing design processes in education, in research and commercially.

    How can stories get translated into future artefacts?2006In: Proceedings of Wonderground: International Conference 2006, Lisbon, 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses a workshop method suitable for use in projects with a participatory design approach. Participatory design is sometimes criticised for focussing too much on what users say. The method described here takes that into account by having users not only talk, but also do acting and make lo-fi prototypes. The method has been used in several different projects. The structure of the workshops is designed to enable the participants to express themselves by saying, doing and making. People express different aspects through different channels and by enabling people to express themselves not only by talking but also by acting and constructing artefacts we create a richer understanding of their needs and desires as well as their context and situation. The method often gives ‘good’ results that are foundations for further design work.

    Regarding Design as a Constituting Practice Matters2011In: Proceedings of the Nordic Design Research Conference: 'Making Design Matter', Helsinki: NORDES / [ed] Ilpo Koskinen, Tiina Härkäsalmi, Ramia Mazé, Ben Matthews, Jung-Joo Lee, Helsinki: NORDES , 2011, p. 308-311Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores how the two concepts of representing and constituting are used in relation to design practice. The terms representing and representation are often used to describe the relation a model or prototype has to the end result. In this exploratory paper we investigate the potential impact of a change in terms, from represent to constitute. One inspiration is the writing of John Stewart on the post-semiotic approach to communication. The examples used in the paper are from practice rooted in both traditional industrial design and co-design. I argue that it is important to see design work as a constituting practice rather than a representative one. Supporting this standpoint are both the fact that the future does not yet exist and therefore is difficult to represent, and the strong argument that knowledge is created in dialogue and constituted in action. Thus, when we stop interpreting design matter as representations, design can matter to the world.

    The use of the absent and othering in design and critical analysis of PD activities2016In: PDC '16 Proceedings of the 14th Participatory Design Conference: Short Papers, Interactive Exhibitions, Workshops - Volume 2 Pages 29-32 ACM New York, NY, USA, ACM Digital Library, 2016, p. 29-32Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I explore the use of the concept representation and argue that it can complement the concept constituting in order to support the design and critical analysis of participatory design activities. John Law acknowledges that in a representation some things are made present, while others are deliberately made absent, which is necessary. But it is important to realise that there are also things that are Othered, i.e. things that are unconsciously repressed and absent. The concepts are explored with the help of two cases involving participatory design workshops. I discuss how both concepts can be used in order to make sense of these participatory design activities. The paper also reflects on the importance of what realities the method used supports to be made present.

    Workshop: exploring participatory prototyping of services2012In: PDC 2012 Conference Proceedings - volume 2,, New York, NY, USA: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012, p. 151-152Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This full day workshop intends to explore approaches, methods and techniques that can be used in participatory prototyping of services. The participants will contribute with their experiences of different ways of working with participatory prototyping. During the workshop the participants will share, explore and give feedback on the method or case that they present. By engaging in other methods there will also be a learning activity. Another aim of the workshop is to initiate research and development of knowledge within the emerging field of participatory prototyping of services and product service systems. One particular interest regards the relation between details and “the whole”. The emphasis of the workshop is to have creative learning experiences.

    Reality based video-prototyping2005In: Proceedings of ECSCW'05, 2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This video describes a cooperative design workshop on future mobile video communication for deaf people using sign language. One issue was to explore how an idea for a mobile interpretation-on-the-fly service could be designed for collaboration and communication. Besides the deaf sign-language users, other stakeholders participated, for example service providers and mobile phone manufacturers. The workshop started with users' narratives of their daily life. We encouraged them to narrate collaboration and communication situations that they had conceived as problematic. During the discussions after the stories were told ideas for solutions were constructed. Thereafter all participants collaborated in constructing video-prototypes, i.e. staged and videotaped visual representations of the ideas for solutions. The workshop methodology provided the telephone manufacturers, service-providers, etc. with first hand experience of the narrations and they brought the video prototypes into their own organizations for further development.

    Abstract [en]

    This (proposal for a) full day workshop intends to explore design experiments to create a deeper understanding of the underpinning mindsets, epistemological assumptions and their implications as well as possibilities within the context of academic research. The participants will contribute with their experiences of conducting design experiments in a variety of settings and contexts. During the workshop the participants will give and get feedback on the experiments that they presented and explored, get to learn from others’ experiments, and also participate in the discussion and development of proposals for new experiments(new) principles for design experiments in academic research. One aim of the workshop is to develop a conceptual map that categorizes the various design experiments based on their epistemological assumptions and practical implications for design practice as well as academic research.

    Experiencing, Exploring and Experimenting in and with Co- Design Spaces2011In: Proceedings of the Nordic Design Research Conference: 'Making Design Matter' / [ed] Ilpo Koskinen, Tiina Härkäsalmi, Ramia Mazé, Ben Matthews, Jung-Joo Lee, Helsinki: NORDES , 2011, p. 298-302Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of design space has been useful to designers in supporting the act of designing and for reflecting on the activity of designing. With the increase in cooperative design practices, it is time to consider the concept of co-design space. Co-design spaces differ from design spaces in that they tend to be situated in the early front end of the design process (also referred to as pre-design), they rely on the collective creativity of designers working together with non-designers, they deal with very complex challenges such as social change and organizational transformation, and they often point to embodiments in the immaterial domains such as experiences and services. We will argue that we can add greatly to our understanding of design by experiencing, exploring and experimenting in and with co-design spaces.

    Dealing with wicked problems, in messy contexts, through prototyping2017In: The Design Journal, ISSN 1460-6965, Vol. 20, no Sup. 1, p. S886-S899Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores how designers’ core competencies relate to the emerging paradigmatic shift in design practice, and provides suggestions for design education. The shift is due to the increased interest from design in engaging with social and political contexts and issues the last fifteen years. Designers have several core competencies and in this paper prototyping and thereby the capacity to work with wicked problems are explored. More explicitly, we suggest that designers can design relevant propositions with the help of successive prototyping. Tightly integrating designing propositions with problem setting is necessary when dealing with wicked problems. This works well when designers deal with signs and things. However, in order to deal with increasingly complex contexts, we suggest that design students should get more relevant experience of prototyping in complex contexts and improved reflection by making use of theories from STS in order to deal with these complex contexts.

    Design beyond service and product - Educating for new vistas of design education: Final report2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Konstfack has had financing from KK-stiftelsen (The Knowledge Foundation) for two years to address emerging design challenges in the increasingly complex contexts that design is engaging with. Examples are healthcare, design for sustainable development, social innovation, service design. The objective has been to explore potential expansion and supplementary developments of the currently well-functioning specialisation Individual Study Plan in Design. This has been done in the project Design, beyond service and product – educating for new vistas of design professions. People from academia, consultancy, business and the public sector have been invited to workshops, seminars and symposia in order to learn from them regarding the current situation and anticipated needs. The project has also done study visits to design schools, organisations and businesses. The report presents reflections on design competencies and a few possible ways to proceed at Konstfack.
