Graduation blog

This blog describes the graduation project of Jet Gispen. The goal is to investigate how design can bridge the gap between science and society. With a research through design approach speculative design artefacts will be created to research ethical dilemma's of emerging technologies. By discussing  these artefacts both with experts and laypeople a framework for 'ethics through design' will be developed.

The Fiction of friction

Digital product designer Bill Barham argues against the trend of frictionless design. Most digital services seem to focus on removing as much mental and physical friction in their product experience as possible. What is the effect of this goal on the people who use these products? How does it affect they way we spend our money and manage our relationships?

An interesting look at the ethical dimension of seamless digital experiences.
