What is Interaction?

A Design
-
Theory View
:


Interaction is a way of
framing the relationship
between
people and objects designed for the
m
.

The same is true not only of objects but also
of spaces,
messages, and systems
.

Interaction is a
key aspect of function
, and function is a key
aspect of design.

This week Assignment


Create a new personal blog for yourself where you can post your weekly
assignments, work, personal course contents and links.



Observe interactive products/installations on the street/outdoor
environment.

Choose one interesting medium for physical interaction and make
photos of it. Publish photos in your new web blog with details of it’s
functional description and it’s approach for physical interaction.



Send your blog link with your name to
