Open Collaborative Making: A Digital Perspective

Jon Rogers, Irini Papadimitriou, Andrew Prescott

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Open and Collaborative ways of working is a research phrase we have coined to describe co-design that involves group collaborative making. It builds on established theories of design workshops and extends them to include the recent trend in Hackathon culture emerging from the US and UK technology communities. The AHRC commissioned the report as part of a the Digital Transformations program to highlight research at the interface between industry and digital/physical interactions. A key research component of the book explores the different relationships academics and industry have towards making digital physical. The book places public engagement at the forefront of research as an approach. This is reflected in the primary distribution point for the book at the Digital Weekend held at the V&A in September 2014 as part of the London Design Festival. The weekend attracted 13,000 unique visitors to the exhibition and 1,500 copies of the book were distributed. The book is also available online at the publisher, Uniform. Content from the book and exhibition included industry collaborators Microsoft Research, the Met Office, BBC R&D, Penguin Random House, V&A and Uniform alongside academics from the Digital Transformations program (selected by Prescott).
