Working title of my PhD project:
From Designed Obsolescence to Sustainable Technology Design

 

Working with:

- premature obsolescence of ICT artefacts (most prominently the mobile phone, see SMART project | Mobile Phones to the right); see IFIP This Changes Everything conference

- a review of (historical) design cases as to how sustainability related or similar values and principles have been applied in products or concepts (poster: The Long Tail in the ICT Design Space, 2018)

- 'modularity' as emphasized one of these principles, and its downside when it comes to modularization; see PLATE 2019 conference

- Plastics in electronics, 'precious plastics' small-scale collection and recycling to a research prototype; cooperation with Wecycle and Norwegian Trash

- proposals for alternative IC technology, so proto-practices (Transition Design): with a product-service-systems (PSS) business model applied, both hard and soft matter (operating systems, service design) considered (poster: Borrowed(4)Use Mobile, 2019), as well as desirable-future technologies incorporated

- workshops around such proto-practices and desirable futures

 

- teaching in Research Methods in Interaction Design/HCI (Bachelor)
