Designing Dynamic Atmospheres: - Highlighing Temporality as Design Concern within Interaction Design

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

This paper addresses the notion of atmospheres from a designerly perspective, and discusses temporal challenges facing interaction designers when acknowledging the dynamic character of it. As atmospheres are created in the relation between body, space, and time, a pragmatic approach seems useful, in order to encompass dynamic atmospheres as intertwined, constantly shifting negotiations between the rhythms of the environment and of the body. The contribution of this paper is to unravel these negotiations of diverse rhythms, in order to approach dynamic atmospheres from an operational perspective. The potentials and implications are presented through a design case, Kidkit, highlighting temporality as design parametre within interaction design.
