Taking the new neologisms offline

Jonathan Bean, Daniela Rosner

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Researchers observe that Internet users are buying pixelated, personalized 'Like' stamps on Etsy to customize and domesticate their online interactions, bringing branded meanings back into their domain of influence. Researchers also find the recent media attention to the 'New Aesthetic' foregrounds salient cultural distinctions in ordinary life, as they focus on human-computer interaction and technology design. Translating imagery from online to offline works to further reinforce the boundaries between each medium whether dwelling on the past or reimagining our future as human beings in the form of points of data. Design researchers have also introduced a range of new concepts and new words to reconcile the gap between the physical and the digital domains.
