    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; democratisation of design; toolkits; 3D printing; layperson participation; post-phenomenology; research through design; design; design;

    Abstract : This dissertation in industrial design focuses on the gap between the context of design and the context of use. It aims to open up design to the layperson and investigate an active role for the layperson in the design of everyday products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thinking beyond the Cure a constructive design research investigation into the patient experience of radiotherapy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Tara Mullaney; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; constructive design research; patient experience of radiotherapy; actor networks; design experiments; composite methodology; mixed-methods; prototyping; design research; research through design;

    Abstract : This constructive design research dissertation aims to understand how design can be used as part of a composite research approach to generate knowledge about how complex phenomena are composed through their interactions and relationships with various actors, both human and non-human. It has done this by investigating a single phenomenon, the patient experience of radiotherapy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design Beyond Interventions – Supporting Less Energy-reliant Activities in the Everyday
