The call for papers for the TOCHI Special Issue on "Unmaking & HCI: Techniques, Technologies, Materials, and Philosophies Beyond Making" is live! Submissions due May 30. Katherine and Eric P. will serve as guest editors alongside Steven Jackson, Kristina Lindström, Samar Sabie, Asa Ståhl, and Ron Wakkary.
All 4 papers we submitted to ACM CHI have been conditionally accepted! So excited to share our work on decomposable energy storage, lotion-mediated on-skin interactions, version control for creative practices, and a documentation tool for HCI classes. Pre-prints forthcoming.
The Hybrid Ecologies Lab (H•E•L) explores scientific research, design, and art through the innovation, development, deployment, and evaluation of novel physical devices and interactive systems that advance our computing culture, encourage broad participation by non-experts within science and engineering, improve human health and well-being, and provoke critical debate and inquiry concerning our existing and emerging technological society.
