Permaculture as a foundation for sustainable interaction design and UX

  The main objective of this work is to gain an understanding of the relationships between UX and permaculture. This will deliver insights as to how digital media development can support the need for people to live and work in more ecologically conscious ways and how UX design can become more sustainable. In this respect, it is an attempt to produce sustainability both in and through design. We employ a makers approach to understanding permaculture and its relationships with UX in both physical and digital spaces. The work utilizes ideas from blending theory (Fauconnier and Turner, 2002) to generate conceptualizations of ecologically effective sustainable interaction design (SID) spaces. We employ material anchors to ground complex ideas of sustainability in augmented physical gardens. Permaculture. Blended Spaces. Sustainable Interaction Design. User Experience. Gardens.
