Backlund, Sara and Gyllenswärd, Magnus and Gustafsson, Anton and Ilstedt Hjelm, Sara and Mazé, Ramia and Redström, Johan (2007) STATIC! The Aesthetics of Energy in Everyday Things. In: Design Research Society Wonderground International Conference 2006, 1-4 November 2006, Lisbon, Portugal.
Abstract: Static! is a project investigating interaction and product design as a way of increasing our awareness of how energy is used in everyday life. Revisiting the design of everyday things with focus on issues related to energy use, we have developed a palette of design examples in the form of prototypes, conceptual design proposals and use scenarios, to be used as a basis for communication and discussion with users and designers. With respect to design research and practice, the aim has been to develop a more profound understanding of energy as material in design, including its expressive and aesthetic potential, thus locating issues related to energy use at the centre of the design process.
