The design community often speaks of “interactivity” as the basis of its work in the digital world. This keynote speech will place “interactivity” in a broader context of the forms of human interaction. The goal is to point toward new dimensions of design work in the digital world that move us off of the flat-land of the computer screen and into the world of human experience.
