A Geography of Design

Talking to machines, with an accent.

User Interfaces provide the basis for communication between humans and machines. Therefore the appearance as well as functionality of UIs are constantly optimised for human performance. What constitutes this human i.e. user? Does he/she exist and if so, what’s his/her favourite color?

This session examines the resilience of UIs, when design basics collide with cultural components. It furthermore provides an imaginative look into the potential of user interfaces that go beyond the mere setting of language preferences.
