I’ve been thinking a lot lately about space. Not outer space, but physical and digital space. The concept of physical space is endlessly fascinating. How we interact with our surroundings as individuals, groups, and societies has profound, and mundane, implications for our daily lives. So much attention is being paid to how good design can foster creativity, make us more at ease, and promote social interaction.
But I wonder what attention is being paid to digital spaces? Of course, graphic designers spend time with visual layouts. I’m thinking about how digital spaces that are not primarily visual are conceptualized and created. How will visitors interact, and through what medium? How will presence be represented, if at all?
This is getting complicated. Still thinking…
As always, I would love to know your thoughts.
