Activity and designing pleasurable interaction with everyday artifacts
Popovic, Vesna (2002) Activity and designing pleasurable interaction with everyday artifacts. In Green, William & Jordan, Patrick (Eds.) Pleasure with products : beyond usability. Taylor and Francis (CRC Press), United Kingdom, London, pp. 367-376.
The paper addresses some issue of pleasurable interaction with everyday artifacts. It covers artifacts and their contextual environment of interaction. It stands on the premise that dynamic interaction between human–artifacts and their contextual environment is essential. Its theoretical construct is based on Popper’s theory of objective knowledge. The paper suggests an approach for user – designer – artifact interaction that is able to support the design of everyday artifacts to be pleasurable to use. It emphasises that the activity and user-artifact interaction are the foci of the design.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
