Experimental Engineering: Articulating and Valuing Design Experimentation

Research output: Conference Article in Proceeding or Book/Report chapterArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


In this paper we propose Experimental Engineering as a way to articulate open-
ended technological experiments as a legitimate design research practice. Experimental Engineering introduces a move away from an outcome or result driven design process towards an interest in existing technologies and how they can assist in creating completely new understandings of people, technology, and their interactions.
