Abstract

The exhibited work explores how Thing Theory can be used in the design of interactive artefacts. In particular, it takes the metaphor of transparency used by Bill Brown to distinguish between objects and things as a creative stimulus. The resulting object allows the designers, and users, to explore nuances in how we might engage with objects as things and points to a rich conceptual framework that might enable new qualities of interaction.
