Engestrm, Yrj, Sannino, Annalisa, Fischer, Gerhard, Mrch, Anders I. and Bertelsen, Olav W. (2010): Grand challenges for future HCI research: cultures of participation, interfaces supporting learning, and expansive learning. In: Proceedings of the Sixth Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2010. pp. 863-866.

This panel will analyze the research activities (including objectives, theoretical foundations, developments, synergy, and differences) of three research centers: * Center for Research on Activity, Development, and Learning (CRADLE), University of Helsinki, with a research focus on "expansive learning"; * Center for LifeLong Learning and Design (L3D). University of Colorado, with a research focus on "cultures of participation"; * InterMedia, Center for Communication, Design and Learning, University of Oslo, with a research focus on "interfaces supporting learning".

We introduce the concept instrumentness as a quality of human-computer interfaces. Instrumentness points to the way musical instruments are controlled and conceptualized through values such as virtuosity and playability, which are important for computer-mediated creative work supporting development in use beyond what is initially designed for. The paper performs a conceptual investigation into qualities in software interfaces that support creativity, supported by analysis of, and interviews with, musical composers. Instrumentness is explained through discussions of materiality and metonymy as central strategies for computer mediated creativity. The paper is contributing to an investigation of the aesthetics of use in relation to software, pointing to alternative values, differing from traditional usability, which are also relevant in creative work outside art and music composition.

In this paper we discuss the re-orientation of human-computer interaction as an aesthetic field. We argue that mainstream approaches lack of general openness and ability to assess experience aspects of interaction, but that this can indeed be remedied. We introduce the concept of interface criticism as a way to turn the conceptual re-orientation into handles for practical design, and we present and discuss an interface criticism guide.

Based on activity theory an expert review method, the activity walkthrough, is introduced. The method is a modified version of the cognitive walkthrough, and is aimed to systematically include the context and history of use.

Fishwick, Paul A. and Bertelsen, Olav W. (2002). Dagstuhl Seminar Report Number 348.

The initial motivation for the seminar was to investigate into alternative, cultural and aestheticallymotivated representations for computer science models such as automata networks, flow graphs, software visualization structures, semantic networks, and information graphs. This was seen as increasingly relevant as the wave of rich, personalized sensory modes became more economic by the perpetual march toward faster and better interfaces. If it were possible to build software models from any material, and with great speed and agility, what new forms of expression would be crafted? It was expected that aesthetics and artist-driven approaches to model representation was about to emerge from more efficient and expressive methods of representation based on advanced technologies. So it was hoped that the advanced possibilities could bring e.g. visualization to be not only about presenting output but also to be about completely new methods of modeling. Thus, Aesthetic Computing was understood as a new trend in modeling and representation where art and science would come together, with art in direct support of science The mix of artists and academics from all sorts of fields resulted in a fruitful week with inspiring presentations, divergent discussions, and even constructive group work, bringing us closer to an understanding of what aesthetic computing might be, but further away from a definition. In the last session we tried to formulate what aesthetic computing could be about, based on that discussion Paul wrote the aesthetic computing "manifesto".

This paper challenges user interface paradigms for mobile devices, by using the technical classification of augmented reality interfaces as a thinking tool to develop ideas for interaction with mobile devices. The paper presents future work scenarios from a wastewater treatment plant embodying PDA applications derived from the classification of augmented reality interfaces. The focus on physical interaction with objects of work and with the mobile device provides us with a range of interaction styles, based on e.g. gestures and manipulation of objects. Furthermore, issues of transparency and directness are addressed. The future scenarios indicate that the concepts of augmented reality support solving context problems in mobile design.
