A couple weeks ago, I attended a lecture by Mr. Bill Moggridge, Director of the National Design Museum. It was an interesting albeit short lecture on what he finds interesting about curatorial design, as well as how the Design Museum looks to keep up with the trends of participatory and accessible exhibits. He currently has a new media committee trying to make the museum more available online. He has also written a book titled ” Designing Interactions” which highlights the different ways that artists and designers have been creating interactive and participatory technology. There are interview videos and biographies for each of the interviewed artists both online and on a DVD included in the book. Better still, he has offered this book FREE for download, either by chapter or in its entirety.
There’s some pretty great stuff here, and I thought it would be of some interest to the class. http://www.designinginteractions.com/book
