A Not-Only-Human Centered Design Manifesto

Human-centered design can be disastrous In how it allows us to impose our will over objects, other species, and nature in general. It also seeps into how we treat other people that we think are inferior and even sometimes ourselves. Often the human centrality plays out in design without regard for what that one-directional relationship does to our perception of ourselves and the culture we are creating.

Examples of such design are Alexa and Uber.

How can we design interactions that change how we see ourselves as a society, how we treat beings and things? How can we create a more balanced ecosystem?

 

Please take a look at a project ii'm working on that takes some inspiration from <3 posthuman theory <3
