- Collision (February 2013, Brussels), on-going research on design as conflict-management . http://blogs.lgru.net/collision/
The catalog serves as a summary of, or introduction to the ongoing conversations, workshops, prototypes and speculations on rethought graphical tools. Gathered around four ‘axes’ 16 ‘case-stories’ are presented, inspiring potential future tools.
The ‘Graphical Shell prototype’ (GSp) turns one of the case-stories presented in the catalog into a working prototype. Through an online election the participants of the LGRU chose GSp out of the 16 presented ‘case-stories’ to be developed into a prototype. GSp tries to blend two distinctive modes of input: The Graphical User Interface (the canvas) and text based input (the terminal). By blending these modes of input GSp also tries to blend two distinct cultures of computing and design.
