Chance-seeking as a way of making sense in the time of technological entanglement Emanuele Bardone Institute of Informatics Tallinn University, Tallinn Estonia

Transposition of meaning As we take the pen or pencil in our hand, you can only sense the pen or the pencil in between our fingers. But, as soon as we start using it, something mysterious happens. The main effect of such transposition is the creation of a new way of doing something in the world

I want to cycle in the dark (goal) A bike light is what I need (means) A bike light is designed to serve the purpose of cycling in the dark I don’t want to get surprised I am just implementing a course of action determined beforehand

This seems to disclose something quite interesting about the way in which we can engage with technological artifacts

Chance-seeking as tinkering with chance events

I was quite disappointed by posting multiple pictures…

This was my chance…

Collage as an artifact for learning

Collage as an artifact for sensemaking

A story about quoting….
