“The future … is too important to be left for futurologists”: A new vision for interaction design for sustainability.
As a contested concept sustainability can mean different things for different people. With that said, the point of departure for my current research is that if sustainability is about anything, it is about the future. In my labtalk I will provide a brief taxonomy of the ways in which interactive media are used to communicate the future orientation of sustainability. I will then focus on one of these modes and illustrate it with an interactive installation titled Sustainability in an Imaginary World.
Hope to see you there!
