Shifting perspectives

 

PhD festival 2018

Looking for/at histories of Scandinavian User-Centered Design

The aim of my exhibited piece was to highlight three main aspects of my PhD project: Where could we look – and with which perspectives – in order to understand where user-centered design practices come from; which ideas, values, norms and assumptions might be embedded in these design methods, given the historical contexts in which they emerged; and how could we tell histories of design and designing that open up for broader considerations of which contexts are considered relevant for making sense of current and future practices in design?
