EKSIG 2015 “Tangible Means”

EKSIG stands for The Experimental Knowledge Special Interest Group, and is based in UK, under the Design Research Society.

On the 25th and 26th of November 2015 group will held a conference on “Tangible Means: Experiential knowledge through materials.”

“The conference welcomes contributions exploring and discussing materials in relation to sensuous qualities, objects, context, strategy, service, space, time, place, techniques, discipline, domain, production, sustainability, interaction, use, metaphors, imaginations, associations, reflective thinking, etc.

EKSIG interpret materials in the widest possible sense to include any kind of creative outputs in whatever formats. With this conference, we wish to explore different ways in which experiential knowledge through materials can be given more appropriate consideration within the framework of research.”

It is with great pleasure that the fonference this year, and for the first time outside UK, will be hosted at Design School Kolding!

As an insider I can tell that there will be an exhibition on the CRISP collection from the Institute “Designing Quality in Interaction” at Eindhoven University of Technology. Can’t wait!
