Designing Interactions for Digital Possessions
It is well known that people struggle to manage, curate and keep track of their digital possessions. This is exacerbated as our relationships and interactions with digital materials diversify, shifting from the notion of files stored on a computer to material that is shared with different people, saved as different versions over time, and distributed and propagated across services and devices. I will draw on user research and design work in asking how new paradigms for user interactions might address these issues, and enable people to be more aware and in control of their digital content.
All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there!
