Transcript

  • 1. Exaptive Innovation
    • and creative epistemology
    • Jb Labrune - 2010
  • 2. Phd Work 2007
    • Children and Creative Technologies, an exaptive phenomenon
    • Answering the question: Why children rarely use objects according to the rules edicted by their designers ?
  • 3. More questions
    • What is the nature of creative re-configurations ?
    • Are these modifications similar in digital and physical spaces ?
    • How to help researchers to understand creative re-configurations ?
  • 4. Empirical Study
    • Grounded Theory ( Glaser and Strauss, 1967 )
      • Situated Action (Suchman, 1987)
      • SocioMaterial Reconfigurations (Orlikowski, 1987)
      • Co-Adaptation, Triangulation (Mackay, 1990)
  • 5. Triangulation
    • Mackay, 1997 (hci, design, natural sciences)

  • 9. Findings e3
  • 10. Findings e4
  • 11. Findings e5
  • 12. Findings e6
  • 13. Thesis Child-Machine Interaction is an exaptive phenomenon
  • 14. Exaptation
    • Flying is an exaptation
    • A secondary adaptation from thermic regulation evolution
  • 15. Examples
  • 16. Gould, Vrba
    • A character, previously shaped by natural selection for a particular function (an adaptation), is coopted for a new use—cooptation. (2) A character whose origin cannot be ascribed to the direct action of natural selection (a nonaptation), is coopted for a current use—cooptation. Gould and Vrba (1982, Table 1)

    • Lewontin and Gould (1979)
