Steampunk as design fiction

Theresa Tanenbaum, Karen Tanenbaum, Ron Wakkary
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 ACM annual conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '12  
In this paper we look at the Steampunk movement and consider its relevance as a design strategy for HCI and interaction design.  ...  We contend that the practices of DIY and appropriation that are evident in Steampunk design provide a useful set of design strategies and implications for HCI.  ...  We contend that the practices of DIY and appropriation that are evident in Steampunk design provide a useful set of design strategies and implications for HCI.  ...

Do-It-Yourself Empowerment as Experienced by Novice Makers with Disabilities

Janis Lena Meissner, John Vines, Janice McLaughlin, Thomas Nappey, Jekaterina Maksimova, Peter Wright
2017 Proceedings of the 2017 Conference on Designing Interactive Systems - DIS '17  
Recent HCI research has highlighted the potential afforded by maker technologies for supporting new forms of DIY Assistive Technology (DIY-AT) for people with disabilities.  ...  Despite this, critics argue that maker movement membership lacks diversity and that within DIY-AT, it is seldom the people with disabilities who are creating such designs.  ...  Please contact Newcastle Research Data Service at rdm@ncl.ac.uk for access instructions.  ...

Design documentaries

Bas Raijmakers, William W. Gaver, Jon Bishay
2006 Proceedings of the 6th ACM conference on Designing Interactive systems - DIS '06  
We suggest that, for design research in HCI, film can be much more than a note-taking tool; we can use it as a means to explore, understand and present the everyday, and benefit from film's capabilities  ...  We discuss key documentary formats, and suggest that a purely observational approach may not be most valuable for design research.  ...  Design researchers Monica Bueno, Lucille Rameckers and Lorna Goulden at Philips Design provided valuable feedback during the production of the films.  ...
