Common approaches and techniques for the design of interactive systems typically emphasize the synthesizing and constructive aspects of design as a reflective practice. With this research stream, we aim to contrast those approaches with deconstruction in interactive system design. After demonstrating how collaboratively taking things apart can be a fruitful means to kickstart explorative design processes, we are currently investigating disassembling of interactive artifacts as it happens in various design practices. Finally, we aim to establish deconstruction in interactive system design as an approach that supports the (re-)examination of interaction design’s languages, materials, and processes.
