Interaction Design Theater

Interaction design, like theater, depends on the performances of human actors to realize its aesthetic expression. Interaction designers create software code much like theater scripts, while users often ignore them and improvise. Drawing from the analogy of Computer as Theater proposed by Brenda Laurel and the Theater of the Oppressed developed by Augusto Boal, this research project experiments mixing embodied practices of designing and acting to criticize oppressive interactions and create liberating interactions mediated by computer technology.
