Troubling Innovation: Craft and Computing Across Boundaries.

Abstract: Craft practices such as needlework, ceramics, and woodworking have long informed and broadened the scope of HCI research. Whether through sewable microcontrollers or programs of small-scale production, they have helped widen the range of people and work recognised as

The technocrafted posthuman: introducing cyborganics.

Abstract: The augmented human, whether in the form of quantifying wearable technologies or extended into the cyborg, continues the Cartesian trajectory of liberating spirit from matter. Reductionist calculation replaces the inconvenient unruliness of organic matter, with predictable precision and orderliness.

Cyborganic wearables: sociotechnical misbehavior and the evolution of non-human agency

Introduction:  The following chapter posits that the evolution of wearable technology into our materials and our bodies represent opportunities for an expanded understanding of what it means to be human, augmenting human perception and sensual capacity. This technogenesis of the

Becoming-with vegetal: sympoietic design practice with plant partners

Introduction:  In this chapter, I describe the profound changes in the relationship between us, two human designers, and various plant participants, which took place during the design process of a plant-controlled, interactive installation. Furthermore, I examine the nature of participation

Crafting sympoietic artifacts: Making sonic needlepoint with nonhuman partners.

Abstract: Craft-based approaches are increasingly gaining attention in the field of HCI and interaction design research. These approaches require the development of a wide array of acute sensitivities towards both physical and digital materials and their composite qualities; skills which

Understanding craft-based inquiry in HCI

Abstract: Over the last decade, a number of craft-based approaches to research have emerged within the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). In this paper, we examine the roots of crafting as they apply to these approaches, which blend analog crafts

Fostering Care and Peaceful Multispecies Coexistence with Agential Provotypes

Abstract. Human societies are deeply entangled with biotic and abiotic entities that constitute and sustain our life-world, consequently to address peaceful coexistence within and between human societies, necessitates addressing a much broader issue: peaceful multispecies coexistence and the end of environmental
