This message is to encourage you to preview and purchase a book which
describes a new perspective on IxD. While IxD appears in most
universities as either an adjunct of HCI or as a Design skill in the
department of Mulitmedia/Art, this treatise argues IxD as a scientific
pursuit which sees no boundaries to the topical application of its
form, encompassing all of science.
"Interactivity is not merely the study of computational interfaces,
but observation and application of universal behavior with respect to
all systems, sciences and processes. Interaction Design (IxD) is not
the product of art and psychology, but the product of all sciences and
their relationships to art as art is an application of science."
I hope you'll share this with your IxD and interested colleagues. I
can guarantee it is a radical approach to the endeavors present in the
world of Interaction Design, shifting the depth and applicability of
the topic of IxD.
