GVU Center Brown Bag: Astrid Bin, "Designing for Exploration: Using Inefficiency As An Approach"

Abstract:

The benefits of efficiency and usability in design are well-documented. However, when designing interfaces and experiences for exploration, learning, artistic content, or contexts where there is no task (or when the "task" is emergent), the trajectory is unclear and a task-based approach becomes inappropriate. This talk discusses designing for exploration, and how inefficiency as a design approach can be used to think about and create experiences for creative, narrative, and learning applications.

Speaker Bio:

Astrid Bin is an artist and technologist. She has exhibited installation and sculpture works worldwide, and is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Digital Media and Music Technology at Georgia Institute of Technology.
