Abstract [en]

Shared mediated spaces provide viable alternatives for meetings and interactions. The development of collaborative mediated workspaces and shared negotiation spaces will have a fundamental impact on all human practices. Previous design-led research, has identified spatial design concepts, such as mediated gaze, and spatial montage, which, if unaddressed, may be said to impose friction, and thus impact negatively on the experience of mediated presence. The current paper discusses a set of conceptual tools for presence design, in relation to a prototype that is currently being developed by an interdisciplinary academic work group: The Mediated Sketching Table. The prototype combines analogue and digital interaction tools and technologies including HTML5 and WebRTC. Here, we present our initial observations when using the prototype and discuss possible ways to overcome design friction in the prototype. We acknowledge that mediated presence cannot be ensured by design or technology alone. However, by monitoring various design features, presence designers can seek to reduce the friction that otherwise inhibits mediated presence, mutual trust, knowledgesharing, and teamwork efficiency.

Abstract [sv]

Delade medierade utrymmen ger gångbara alternativ för möten och interaktion. Utvecklingen av medierade arbetsytor för samarbete och delade förhandlingsutrymmen kommer att ha en avgörande inverkan på alla områden. Tidigare designledd forskning har identifierat rumsliga designkoncept som t.ex. medierad blick, och rumslig montage, som om inte beaktas, kan sägas att införa friktion och därmed inverka negativt på erfarenheten av medierad närvaro. Detta papper diskuterar en uppsättning konceptverktyg för närvarodesign och en prototyp som håller på att utvecklas av en tvärvetenskaplig akademisk arbetsgrupp: Det medierade skissbordet. Prototypen kombinerar analoga och digitala interaktionsverktyg och teknik inklusive HTML5 och WebRTC. Här presenterar vi våra initiala observationer av användning av prototypen och diskuterar möjliga sätt att övervinna designfriktion i prototypen. Vi tillkännager att medierad närvaro inte kan säkerställas genom konstruktion eller teknik ensam,  men genom att bevaka olika designtekniker kan närvarodesigners försöka minska friktionen som annars hämmar medierad närvaro, ömsesidigt förtroende, kunskapsdelning och lagarbete effektivitet.
