I presented my article Making Use in the Computational Making Workshop that I co-organized along with Prof. Terry Knight, Dina El-Zanfaly, Daniel Cardoso Llach, Mine Ozkar, Athina Papadopoulou, and Cagri Zaman. The workshop took place at the 6th International Conference On Design Computing And Cognition (DCC ‘14), 21 June 2014, University College London, London, UK. Here is a link to the workshop papers, including mine. Apart from presentations, the workshop also included discussion groups. I lead the Making Beyond Things group, on the sociotechnical implications of making.
Workshop brief: The goal of the workshop is to articulate and circumscribe an emerging area of research we call Computational Making. Making is construed broadly here – it’s not about digital fabrication. We are interested in how our active bodies and senses participate in the making of spaces and the things in them, and the potential roles of computation in making activities. We aim in this workshop to bring together diverse perspectives on making from a range of disciplines to envision new directions and possibilities for computation in making.
