Dynamics of research through design

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportKonferenceartikel i proceedingpeer review


In this paper, we investigate Research through Design at a micro-level, by addressing the dynamic interplay of research and design as they unfold throughout a design process. As our principal case, we consider the design of a three-dimensional projection installation, a process that unfolded over a one-year period. We analyse material collected from 18 key events during the process, in order to identify the ongoing dynamics. Based on the analysis, we establish how the interplay evolves in a complex structure, where the design and research interests continuously couple, interweave, and decouple. Last, the paper discusses what facilitates the three different kinds of dynamics. © 2012 ACM.
