By Fabien Girardin

Embracing the real world’s messiness Fabien Girardin Pompeu Fabra University Interactive Technology Group

seamlessness, invisibility, calmness, “ambient intelligence”

“cloud of connectivity”

automatic doors picture: temp13rec.

the world is messy

infrastructures break down



Eboy co-existence of technologies



uncertainty inaccuracy of physical sensing and the ambiguity of references complex and dynamic technical problems related to bandwidth, power, latency, disconnection, and so forth mismatch between what can be sensed and what is expected create uncertainty


cultural bias

seamful design revealing the “seams” (limits, boundaries, uncertainty) embraces the messiness of everyday life know when to reveal or hide the imperfections Chalmers, M., and Galani, A. Seamful interweaving: heterogeneity in the theory and design of interactive systems. In DIS ’04: Proceedings of the 2004 conference on Designing interactive systems (New York, NY, USA, 2004), ACM Press, pp. 243–252.


seamfulness picture:

design for appropriation co-evolution with technologies is about accommodation and appropriation we play with noise and disorder. It is what allow us to be in command users as actors, not as passive recipients configure, adapt and customize technologies appropriation not only by simplification

conclusions seamlessness is the exception messiness and limits cannot be ignored design technologies with that in mind same errors as strong AI? do we really want to live in a calm world?
