Inside the department

Our practice-based research integrates design-led research methods with work on embedded and ubiquitous technologies to produce prototype products embodying new concepts for interaction.

The Interaction Research Studio explores the design of computational systems for everyday life.

We don’t pursue design as problem solving, but instead design products to create situations that encourage playfulness, exploration and insight.

Because our prototypes are evocative and open ended, a crucial part of our process involves asking volunteers to live with our designs to see how their experiences evolve. The outcomes of our work include articles and exhibitions that expose our philosophies, methods and empirical work to academic, industrial and general publics.

Our work is inherently interdisciplinary, and we are happily situated at Goldsmiths, with its top-calibre departments of Sociology, Cultural Studies, Music and Computing as well as our own Department’s expertise in critical design, sustainability and design learning. Please contact us if you'd like to know more about our work or discuss possibilities for collaboration.
