Designing well : sustain-able interaction design and vegetarianism
Sade, Gavin J. (2012) Designing well : sustain-able interaction design and vegetarianism. In Zelenko, Oksana, Felton, Emma, & Vaughan, Suzi (Eds.) Design & Ethics : Reflections on Practice. Routledge (Taylor & Francis Group), Abingdon, Oxon, pp. 74-96.
Designing Well: Vegetarianism Sustainability and Interaction Design, focuses on the field of Interaction Design and is an exploration of how design can be reconsidered by employing a different critical lens – that of vegetarianism. By extending the eating analogy to design, other aspects of practice can be reframed and reviewed. This is done through a survey of different ways designers and artists have approached the problems of electricity use. This survey begins by looking at a number of functional products that are currently on the market, and then turns to consider a range of alternate approaches taken in research, art and critical design. The second half of the paper can be considered as a form of contextual review, as a survey of different approaches artists and designers employ to address a specific issue in and through practice. This ranges from pragmatic design to critical and radical interventions.
