Signs, Material and Technology: A Design Journey in the Forests of Malaysian Borneo

Speaker:  Tariq Zaman – Sibu,, Malaysia
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


In this presentation, Tariq Zaman will share his experiences and insights of co-designing mobile technologies with indigenous communities for digitization and preservation of indigenous knowledge in Malaysian Borneo. He will reflect upon and report the outcomes of design journey, which was initiated in 2009. Dr Zaman recognizes the fact that the representation of indigenous knowledge is transformed within the digitization process under the limitations and capabilities of the technology, however, he also believes that a continuation of local appropriation and co-design of tools will lead to an integrated, intuitive and non-intrusive design process within the local communities.
