Panel at Conf of the Society for the Social Studies of Science (4S): Technologies of representation in design and making (Nov 2015, Denver USA)

Dates: 11-14 November
Location: Denver, Colorado, USA
Website: http://www.4sonline.org/meeting
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 29 March 2015

Listed as Panel #36: From one thing to another: Technologies of representation in design and making
Arlene Oak, University of Alberta, aoak@ualberta.ca
Claire Nicholas, cn4@ualberta.ca

Technologies of visualization are a well-established matter of concern to STS scholars interested in questions of knowledge production and representation (Hacking 1983, Latour and Woolgar 1986, Latour 1990, Kaiser 2005). Recent work extends this consideration to acoustic technologies (Helmreich 2007, Pinch and Bijsterveld 2004, Roosth 2009). This panel opens an adjacent conversation in relation to the use of digital and analog media in the design processes of fields such as industrial design, architecture, planning, engineering, and visual communication design. Here the issues are less about constituting pattern, order, and meaning from scientific data, with the digital/analog question instead highlighting issues of translatability, or “transductivity” (Helmreich 2007, Silverstein 2003) across representational mediums, and in relation to problems of scale and complexity. It also bears on professional debates on craft, making, and aesthetics.

Materiality and Aesthetics, Enhancing the Object and Democratising Technology (July 2014, Cornwall UK)

Dates: 10-11 July 2014
Location: Falmouth University, Cornwall, UK
Website: http://www.autonomatic.org.uk/allmakersnow/conference.html
Deadline for extended abstracts: 31 March 2014

The digital crafters in the Autonomatic Research Group at Falmouth University invite you to join them in critical debate about a radically transformed vision of 21st century production. In this brave new world of Makerspaces and Fablabs anyone can be a digital craftpreneur, harnessing the power of digital technologies to create, co-create, collaborate, make and sell.

Aimed at makers and researchers of all shapes and codes including hackers, crafters, inventors, designers, economists, curators and critical theorists, this two day conference will explore craft values, traditional making processes and novel forms of engagement, participation and interaction in digital and material cultures.

There are three broad themes we wish to explore: Materiality and Aesthetics, Enhancing the Object and Democratising Technology. More information on these and the conference exhibition and workshop opportunities can be found on the conference website.

We welcome contributions from both within and beyond the field of craft.

For queries, expressions of interest and early bird registration contact the conference team at:info@autonomatic.org.uk.

Space Architecture: Designing Human Systems Interaction – Session E5.3
25th Symposium On Space Activity & Society, 65th International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2014)

In response to the diversifying needs of users in space exploration and commercial spaceflight, interest in human-machine interfaces has continued to grow in space agencies, industry, and academia. At the same time, the wider individual and societal implications of the human-technology relationship have evolved into a key theme of interdisciplinary engagement with space. This session explores conceptual and applied issues related to the design of human interaction with space systems. In the context of habitats and infrastructure in the space and ground segment, these include interfaces of work stations, consoles, and devices; tools and payload hardware used in EVA and IVA; remote interaction; human-robotic partnerships; ambient intelligence, ubiquitous computing, and beyond.
