Learning to Live in the Thick Interface By Jonathan Hanahan
eBook (PDF): $0.00
As media platforms shift towards more dynamic interfaces, the separation between user and content grows infinitely. While advertised as thin, light, and seamless, these platforms mask a thick and... More > complicated space in which society must navigate. This is what I call the “Thick Interface.” The Thick Interface is the portal we use to toggle back and forth and through which we communicate. It is solid and porous, physical and digital, enhancing and diminishing. It may also be a combination of these things simultaneously, or none at all. Through a series of projects, essays, interviews, and case studies, this book highlights—rather than masks—the complexity of this space through interaction, participation, and analogy. The work seeks to visualize and reveal the relationship between the decisions we make in contemporary media platforms and the ramifications of those decisions and challenges designers to provoke rather than mask the complexity underneath our sleek devices and interactions with technology.< Less

The Dictionary of the Analogue // The Dictionary of the Digital By Jonathan Hanahan
Hardcover: $48.65
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book documents a research project completed in 2014 at the Rhode Island School of Design. The project explores language in both physical and digital environments. By archiving words which... More > contain alternative meanings in each world through a singular window, specifically the window of a Google image search, this project slightly vibrates our associations with language in contemporary society. By isolating the traditional bonds with these particular homonyms, the book shows multiple aspects of our contemporary relationships with language in both analogue and digital environments. This vibration is about revealing that while the distinction between the two associations may be vast, the experience of their use is far less polarizing. In reality, these associations and uses happen simultaneously. We are in both worlds at once and thus, the interface is no longer a gateway to another place. It is a place unto itself.< Less
