Abstract

Designing interactions for products and services, interaction designers often look for inspiration from microinteractions and user interfaces. The sociological perspective of symbolic interactionism can provide a new source of inspiration in the form of symbolic interactions. This paper explores how designers can use symbolic interactions to inspire new interactions by identifying, analyzing and applying meanings embodied in people's actions into new designs. The author reflects on the application of symbolic interactions in an interaction design graduate studio workshop.
