Revisiting the Jacquard Loom: Threads of History and Current Patterns in HCI
2012 (English)In: Proceeding CHI '12 Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, 2012, 1593-1602 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In the recent developments of human computer interaction, one central challenge has been to find and to explore alternatives to the legacy of the desktop computer paradigm for interaction design. To investigate this issue further we have conducted an analysis on a fascinating piece of machinery often referred to as one of the predecessors of the modern day computer, the Jacquard loom. In analysing the Jacquard loom we look at qualities in design and interaction from some different perspectives: how historical tools, crafts, and practices can inform interaction design, the role of physicality, materiality, and whole-body interaction in order to rethink some current conceptions of interaction and design of computational devices.
