This workshop explored the creation of stylistic interactions through observation, design and prototyping. The workshop took place over two sessions, the first session starting with a short talk introducing the workshop participants to the concept of stylistic interactions and the practice of interaction design. Participants were then presented with their first task, which involved observing and documenting interactions around Limerick. The second session started with a short primer on rapid prototyping and physical sketching methods. The aim was then to redesign one of the interaction situations that the participants discovered in the first session, with the aim of creating an interface that allows for greater expression of style.
