Im Projekt futurehomestories entwerfen Teilnehmende auf Grundlage ihrer persönlichen Lebenserfahrungen, Wünsche und Bedürfnisse zusammen mit Forschenden individuelle, alternative und innovative Szenarien für das Zuhause der Zukunft.

Wie können Menschen durch Co-Creation Methoden Geschichten darüber erzählen, wie sie in Zukunft mit Technologien in ihrem Zuhause leben möchten?

Um diese Frage beantworten zu können, möchten wir Menschen aus der Bevölkerung zu Co-Creation Workshops einladen, damit sie ihre Ideen, wie sie im so genannten smart home leben wollen, aktiv einbringen können. Ihre aktive Teilnahme ermöglicht es uns, das Zuhause als Anwendungsort für neue Technologien besser zu verstehen. Für die Workshops wird ein Koffer konzipiert, der auf bereits vorhandenen Methoden und Werkzeugen aufbaut. Dieser wird auf Reisen zu Teilnehmenden geschickt oder in Workshops verwendet. Das im Koffer enthaltene Material gibt den Partizipierenden die Möglichkeit, ihre persönlichen Ideen auszudrücken.

Die resultierenden Ergebnisse etwa in Form von Geschichten werden dokumentiert und in Form eines Buchs der alternativen Zukünfte (Zine) an die Bevölkerung zurückgegeben und dem Fachpublikum zugänglich gemacht.

Perspektivisch ist es das Ziel von futurehomestories, die erprobten Co-Creation Methoden nachhaltig zu Verfügung zu stellen. Dazu werden die im Koffer enthaltenen Methoden und Werkzeuge durch die Forschenden verglichen und analysiert sowie später für eine kontextunabhängige Benutzung aufbereitet.

Das Projekt futurehomestories ist Teil des Netzwerks für integrierte Forschung. Dieses verfolgt als übergeordnetes Ziel die Konzeption, Umsetzung und Etablierung integrierter Forschung, wobei darauf hingearbeitet wird, dabei zu einem umfassenden Forschungskonzept für integrierte Forschung zu gelangen.

Futurehomestories setzt sich dabei kritisch mit verschiedenen Aspekten integrierter Forschung auseinander und strebt eine transdisziplinäre Adaption, Durchführung, Reflexion sowie den Transfer von Co-Creation Methodiken an. Dafür gilt es, ethische, rechtliche und soziale Aspekte in den Co-Creation-Prozess und dessen Reflexion zu etablieren. Insgesamt wird so das Ziel verfolgt, integrierte Forschung weiter voranzutreiben.

Das Projekt gliedert sich in vier aufeinanderfolgende Phasen und zwei Arbeitsbereiche, die sich über die ganze Dauer des Projekts erstrecken.

Phase 1: Vorbereitung des Projekts.

Phase 2: Konzeption und Durchführung der Co-Design Workshops.

Phase 3: Überarbeitung des Konzepts und erneute Durchführung von Workshops.

Phase 4: Nachbereitung der Erkenntnisse aus den vorherigen Phasen und Wissenstransfer in Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft.

 

Prozessbegleitende Phasen

Über die gesamte Dauer des Projekts soll die Kommunikation und Kooperation zwischen Forschenden unterschiedlicher Fachdisziplinen sichergestellt werden. Ferner soll ein kontinuierlicher Austausch mit der Öffentlichkeit und dem Fachpublikum stattfinden.

Workshop - On a sustained dissemination and sharing of co-design methods

Chemnitz 24.11.23, 9.00-10.30 Uhr

Haupt, B., Becker, A., Pentzold, C. and Berger, A.

Immense efforts have been undertaken to increase citizen participation in science, which is reflected in the multitude of existing collaborative approaches. This issue has been pointed out specifically in regard to creative approaches: “Design methods are like toothbrushes. Everyone uses them, but no one likes to use someone else’s” (John Zimmermann as cited in Harrison & Tatar, 2011). Not much has changed since this critique – a lot of new co-design methods have been created with little dissemination. 

Even when only considering collaborative inquiries regarding the smart home, admittedly only a small part of the IoT development, there are numerous approaches: collaborative ethnography (Lee & Šabanović, 2013), design drama (Coughlan et al., 2014), design fiction probe (Schulte et al. 2016), empathy workshop (Ghajargar et al., 2017), co-design fiction (Søndergaard & Hansen, 2018), bespoke booklets (Desjardins et al., 2019), deep hanging out sessions (Odom et al., 2019), design fiction probe (Noortman et al., 2019), speculative futures workshops (Kozubaev et al., 2019), un-kit (Ambe et al., 2019), story completion (Cambre et al., 2020), data epics (Desjardins & Biggs, 2021),  data slots (https://dataslots.org/). This panoply of ventures illustrates the enormous range of methods.

In our contribution, we attempt to counteract this trend toward ad-hoc and idiosyncratic proposals that have little effect beyond single research units and teams. Rather than coming up with the next new method, we aim to show that by adapting existing methods and building on each other's approaches, there is no need to follow the apparent necessity of inventing new methods for new projects. Instead, the focus is on sustainability and re-use. In this workshop we will demonstrate the result of our adaptation processes of the IoT Service Kit (https://iotservicekit.com/).

There, we concentrated on narrative aspects of future scenarios but kept the core concept of the original tool so as to enable participants to explain their imaginaries. The adapted toolkit consists of tiles to create a floorplan, cards to represent technologies like sensors or actuators, and tokens to represent actors. The storytelling and creation of scenarios unfolds in a process of speculation. 

In the first part of the workshop, participants will explore the adapted method in small groups. By letting them experience this version, we aim to show how an adaptation can make use of an original method and can help to explore its scope and possibilities.

In the second part of the workshop, we will challenge the question set down in the CfP How co-design approaches can be shared and disseminated in an accessible and sustained manner? We plan for an open discussion on the following aspects:

  • accessibility and availability in light of small numbers or prototype states of many tools,
  • lack of documentation for a lot of methods regarding facilitation despite its crucial role for the success of workshops,
  • challenges of defining mandatory elements of tools and methods due to their various materialities,
  • sharing methods not as copy but adaptation for one's own research – like Mattelmäki (2005) or Lucero et al. (2007) already pointed out in regard to the Cultural Probes approach (see Gaver et al., 1999).

The workshop will anchor this discussion. We will map the results to identify challenges and possible solutions for sharing approaches in an accessible way. The mapping will be distributed among participants. The workshop will be held in german.

Workshop - Designing alternative future home stories

Berlin 29.09.23

Haupt, B., Becker, A., Pentzold, C. and Berger, A.

Usually the smart home imaginaries portray nuclear families living in detached houses with a focus on efficiency and energy. In this workshop, we follow the co-design approach to imagine alternative future homes beyond this stereotype. First, we brainstorm the concept of home addressing idiosyncratic needs and expectations. Second, we try three co-design tool adaptations in small groups which allow us to collaboratively imagine speculative futures. LittleBoxes is a cultural probe variation with which participants can configure a speculative future by using inspirational and technological materials. The Tiles Iot Inventor Toolkit adaptation helps to tell detailed stories of how to possibly live with technology in the future. With the Iot Service Kit adaption participants are able to build speculative home scenarios and playfully explore imaginary future technologies within them. There will be two rounds of co-designing, so every participant will explore two of the toolkits. In the last part, we reflect on the experiences as well as discuss if and how participants could imagine adapting the introduced tools beyond the workshop.

Background

Current smart home innovations often advertise solutions for comfort, security, and efficiency [Li21], [LPH21], [Mc23]. The underlying image of the inhabitants of such homes is very limited and they are often portrayed as a family living in a detached house [De19], [Mc23]. By treating smart home inhabitants only as users and consumers we perpetuate the underlying heteronormative and capitalist values already inscribed in prevailing smart home visions [Be22]. In doing so, the actual needs and wishes of people as well as the personal idiosyncrasies of homes are not reflected in smart home technologies. But how can future smart homes be envisioned and materialized so as to consider alternative forms of living as well as the individual needs of people in their home?

In recent years HCI and design researchers have developed a multitude of approaches and methods in attempting to broaden the view and gain a deeper understanding of how to move beyond narrow marked driven smart home schemes [DWO15], [LPH21], [SAO19]. These approaches draw on collaborative creative processes [SS14] with the aim to create new technological setups for what they consider alternative homes. 

In this workshop, we will build on the approaches of speculative design and co-design ventures [LC15], [SS08] as well as on work of human-computer interaction and research-through-design. The twist of this workshop however is, rather than demonstrating a newly developed method of co-creatively addressing the aforementioned issues regarding smart home visions, we adapt existing co-design methods and shift the focus to a narrative perspective which enables participants to speculate and tell stories about their individual visions of future smart home technologies.

By scaffolding a storytelling process participants are empowered to concretize their imaginaries and detail the diegetic contexts in which speculative technologies can be used without flattening the rich field of possible future modes of IoT-enhanced dwelling [Be22]. Furthermore, by demonstrating our narrative adaptations of co-design approaches we want to show the versatility such methods can yield if they are appropriated and tweaked for a certain research interest.

Aim of the Workshop

In the workshop, we challenge conceptions of home. By sharing and reflecting individual perspectives, we attempt to uncover the underlying assumptions in order to gain new insights and further develop everyone's individual concept of home.

The workshop will address the following questions a) What/where is home? b) What is a standard home? c) What is an alternative home? d) What makes home home? e) How can we imagine and narrate future homes? f) How can alternative imaginaries of smart homes be materialized? g) What roles does/can technology play in the home?  h) What makes the smart home ‘smart’? i) What does this implicate for the interactions with technologies in the home?

To think beyond contemporary imaginaries of smart home technologies, three co-design tools and methods will be provided. Participants have the opportunity to explore and try out two of the methods and speculate on their future homes in a playful manner. The tools enable the participants to express their wishes and needs regarding how they want to live with technology in a home of the future. The methodical scaffolding supports participants in imagining and exploring smart home scenarios in novel ways to create stories about the speculative everyday life in them. 

In detail, the three tools that will be available in the workshop are: LittleBoxes – a cultural probe variation with which participants can configure a speculative future by using inspirational and technological materials [GDP99]. The Tiles Iot Inventor Toolkit adaptation which enables people to tell detailed stories of how to possibly live with technology in the future [MGD17], [Pl23]. With the Iot Service Kit adaption participants are able to build speculative home scenarios and playfully explore imaginary future technologies within them [Io23].

Die Projekte ESTER und futurehomestories veranstalten gemeinsam einen zweitägigen Workshop auf der INSIST-Tagung 2022 am 6. / 7.10.2022.

Am ersten Workshop-Tag imaginieren und spekulieren Partizipierende über das Zuhause der Zukunft. Dafür wird die von futurehomestories entwickelte Adaption des Co-Design Tools „Tiles IoT Inventor Toolkits“ verwendet, das die kollaborative Ideenfindung ermöglicht. Auf Grundlage der durch die Partizipierenden imaginierten Geschichten über spekulative  und hoch idiosynkratische Smart Homes der Zukunft, werden anschließend die in den Entwürfen enthaltenen Implikationen gemeinsam reflektiert. Dafür wird eine aus dem Projekt ESTER stammende Erweiterung des Co-Design Tools verwendet.

Der zweite Workshop-Tag steht ganz im Zeichen der Wissenschaftskommunikation. Zentrale Fragen dabei waren unter anderem:  Wem werden die Ergebnisse solch kollaborativer Kreativprozesse kommuniziert? In welcher Form findet die Kommunikation statt? Wo, wann, und mit welchem Ziel und Nutzen wird kommuniziert?

Co-Designing for the Smart Home – Forschungsmodul digitale Medien und vernetzte Kommunikationspraktiken II

Im Mittelpunkt des Seminars steht die Exploration kreativer Methoden für das Co-Design digitaler Technologien. Im Kern geht es bei diesen neuen Methoden um die Förderung von Kreativität und das Ermöglichen von Partizipation bei der Innovation digitaler Technologien. Das Seminar konzentriert sich gezielt auf das Smart Home, in dem eine Vielzahl von Technologien eingesetzt werden, um häusliche Aktivitäten und das Privatleben zu unterstützen. Zunächst werden bestehende Konzepte des Smart Home diskutiert und kritisch reflektiert sowie ein Verständnis für partizipative Designmethoden entwickelt. Studierende explorieren die Tools und setzen sie zur Erhebung praktisch in einem eigenen Forschungsprojekt ein. In dieser Projektphase führen die Studierenden eigene Co-Design-Workshops im Kontext des Smart Home durch.
