Dr. Michelle Kasprzak is an established contributor to the field of digital culture as an educator, curator, writer, and artist. Her current programmes of research examine the role of art and design in science communication (PRESAGE, NWO-funded project); Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) (Stimuleringsfonds funded project); and the construction of landscape, and the interaction between industry, design, and the natural world to create renewed ecosystems (postdoc funded by Hogeschool Rotterdam).

The concept of digital inclusion as a toolbox of strategies to combat the digital divide is currently an idea with traction in Europe. For example, Portugal recently drew up an ambitious plan for digital inclusion due to complete by 2030.

HCI researchers work within spaces of possibility for potential designs of technology. New methods (e.g., user centrism); expected types of interaction (user with device); and potential applications (urban navigation) can extend the boundaries of these possibilities. However, structural and systemic factors can also foreclose them. A recent wide an...
Artists and designers working with scientists or science-related topics in their work often work in ways which partially mirror the science communicator. In this paper I demonstrate that artists working on long-term investigative projects with science have a unique role to play which adds more nuance to the overall 'straight' science communication...
On June 5th and 6th 2014, a group of researchers from widely differing backgrounds and experiences was brought together by the Risk Science Center at the University of Michigan, and V2_ Institute for Unstable Media in Rotterdam, to creatively explore the concept of responsible technological innovation. By convening experts from fields as diverse as...
The New Aesthetic was a design concept and netculture phenomenon launched into the world by London designer James Bridle in 2011.
