Lars Erik Holmquist recently held a remote lecture on Designing Digital Artifacts, as part of the course Advanced Contextual Design at Keio University. The lecture was recorded (as PowerPoint slideshow with voiceover) and is now available for viewing in two 30-minute segments. You can view the lectures by clicking on the links below, or download the files to view later.
The first part of the lecture introduces the concept of digital artifacts and puts in in the context of the development of interactive and embedded computing systems.
The second part gives a number of examples of digital artifacts designed by the author and collaborators, drawn from over ten years of research.
