As computation moves out of desktops and into the built environment and everyday objects, there is an opportunity to reimagine the ways in which journalism can be reshaped.
This project aims to explore what forms journalism might take if it was designed for physical interaction. To do this, the project aims to understand how news professionals currently give form to journalistic objectives and then asks these people to speculate on how this could be achieved for physical or situated interfaces, such as buildings, clothes or everyday things. These insights will then be used to develop a concept for how journalism could be designed for physical space and physical interaction.
The project will run throughout 2019. It is funded via a University of Queensland Early Career Researcher Grant.
