Description

A key-note presented at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences in february 2014 about how philosophy of "embodiment of human being" can help design the Smart City. Instead of making the city digital, how can we use digital processing to make for a better experience in the actual, concrete world in which our bodies are situated?

DESIGN FOR TRACES

An alternative solution, however, to open the campus for business without any paths, and with g ering all the spaces between buildings. Over a period of month will begin to emerge. These will reflect both the real needs of t the tendency of individuals to follow emerging trails. Andy Clark exlaining ‘Stigmergy’ In: “Being There”, 1997

Movie “Gyroguide” Please go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ed5WdGOMwTs

The smart city: an embodied perspective? How to move beyond the “interface” that gives “access to digital information” How to design technology that supports ‘embodied interactions’ with the city? How to design for: - Skills? - Social practices? - Traces? Google glass: good or bad example? ?

Tomorrow: CITIES, PLACES FOR TRACES • Please bring examples of design projects you know that implement some form of TRACES in relation to the SMART CITY. Anything springs to mind? • Bring your own ideas: how could we design new kinds of TRACES? • Bring your favorite sketching tools, a camera (phone), laptop, … www.jellevandijk.org jelle1975@gmail.com

Embodied Cognition

Suchman, Plans and Situated Actions Suchman on canoe descent: embodied ‘know-how’

Design for know-how (instead of ‘know-that’) Rotterdam “Know-that” “Know-how” (Ryle, 1949; Merleau-Ponty, 1963; Dreyfus, 1979; Suchman, 1986)

What does this ‘know how’ consist of? (In other words what should we design for?) DESIGN FOR SKILLS DESIGN FOR SOCIAL PRACTICES DESIGN FOR TRACES (Van Dijk, Van der Lugt & Hummels, 2014) Beyond Distributed Representation…

DESIGN FOR TRACES

An alternative solution, however, to open the campus for business without any paths, and with g ering all the spaces between buildings. Over a period of month will begin to emerge. These will reflect both the real needs of t the tendency of individuals to follow emerging trails. Andy Clark exlaining ‘Stigmergy’ In: “Being There”, 1997

Traces • Based on Stigmergy (ant trails, termite hills, etc…) Definition of an interactive trace: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. People are immersed in an activity that is meaningful to them There is not much ‘thinking’ involved, it is a skilled routine (e.g. biking to work) As a ‘by-effect’ the activity leaves a trace (e.g. worn grass) Later on, these same people, or other people, can use such traces to guide their actions (see where to go on the grass field) Again, one does not need to think about this, the trace gets ‘taken up’ in the skilled routine, it becomes part of unconscious ‘embodied action’. We can make technology that enables people to create and perceive new kinds of traces that don’t exist in the natural world (e.g. we could create ‘worn grass’ on a concrete road if that concrete is made interactive)

Flight strips: the role of artifacts • Study by Hughes et al, 1995 • Studying everyday work practices of air-traffic controllers • “Flight strips” do not just ‘record information’ • Strips and their location in the space help people to coordinate work ‘in action’, without explicit planning and management. • People show ‘what they are doing now’ through the way they leave the flight strips as traces in the environment • (Dourish, 2001)

Sensing people’s activities in order to create the trace INPUT

Making the trace perceivable by the user OUTPUT

• Natuurlijke slijtage van product als ‘feedback’? (“Echte” traces?)

Target group • • • • • • • • • • • Elementary school children (age 6-12) Independent living seniors (70-80 years old) Working mothers People that bicycle to work each morning in rush-hour Immigrants that just came to live in the city Single people aged 25-35 who are married to their high-paid fulltime job City cleaners Ambulance personnel Police officers who patrol the street (walking) Street artists or street-musicians Tourists from Azia (Don’t take ‘students’ as a target group)

Ask the “How can...” question • • • • • • • How can parents keep track of their children in the city through traces? How can bikers be more social in traffic through traces? How can foreign visitors meet local people through traces? How can police patrol be optimized (or made less obtrusive) using traces? How can children enjoy urban playgrounds more, using traces? How can graffiti-art take on a whole new dimension, using traces? How can older people show each other the way to ‘aged-friendly’ shops, using traces? • How can ….

Photocollage 30 min • Search (or make!) a photo of people of your target group) in their typical urban setting (e.g. bikers in rush-hour) • Add your concept of interactive traces in Photoshop • Make sure it is clear what the people are doing, what ‘is happening’ • Make sure it is clear what role the traces play in their activity (how they help) • Design from the concept, do not let the technological (im)possibilities constrain your thinking. • Send your picture to jelle1975@gmail.com 1 min per team • Pitch your concept 30 min • Discussion and reflection

RESULTS OF WORKSHOP CITIES: PLACES FOR TRACES

Traces guide people to less crowded spots on platform

Traces indicate where people went for dinner last evening

Traces enable you to run against a ‘ghost’ (the trace of another runner, or yourself, on another day/time, on this same track)

Traces show where local people often go, to tourists

Traces show how people usually walk to platform 1, 2, 3 (indicated in colours)

Traces show in which offices people are happy

Traces show how people usually walk to train, to taxi, to the busses, etc.
